About Us

UofL Health – Frazier Rehabilitation Institute began its 60-year history in 1950 when Amelia Brown Frazier, ailing and in need of rehabilitation from a car accident in 1929, was traveling once again to New York to receive care at the Rusk Institute, a leader in the then-emerging field of physical medicine and rehab. A woman of vision saddened that the best care was not available in Kentucky, she set out to create a comparable facility in her hometown. Using her substantial personal wealth and influence, Frazier was the catalyst for the creation of The Rehabilitation Center, Inc. in 1951. In 1984, the name was changed to the Amelia Brown Frazier Rehabilitation Center to honor her leadership. In 1994, following a long relationship with UofL Health – Jewish Hospital, Frazier Rehab Institute merged with then Jewish Hospital HealthCare Services. In 2019, Frazier Rehab Institute became part of UofL Health.
