With traumatic brain injury, life changes in an instant. For us, there is no greater reward than easing human suffering and helping people put their lives back together. CNS helps people with brain injury find hope, independence, and return to a meaningful life - and you play a critical role in their journey.
At CNS, we are a community of “Pathfinders” who work together to find every path possible for our patients to reach their maximum independence and quality of life. We create a supportive work environment through selflessness, innovation, and hard work. We take work very seriously, but we also enjoy a great atmosphere of fun and professional development, and we are committed to promoting a rich environment for each other to thrive through collaboration and empowerment.
