Brainworks, a medical rehabilitation company in Huntsville, has received two awards at the Brain Injury Canada Conference held in Gatineau, Quebec.

The Communication Award and the Corporate Leadership Award honour the company’s national achievements in the field of brain injury rehabilitation.

“This is all so exciting,” said psychologist Arden McGregor, founder and executive director of Brainworks. “I am very proud of our team and all that each one puts into working with our clients. It feels great to be recognized for our dedication and hard work.”

McGregor works from her home base in Huntsville, while much of the management and administrative staff work out of the company’s head office in London, Ontario. A new Muskoka office is scheduled to open early in the new year in Huntsville, once renovations are complete.

The company won the Corporate Leadership Award for its campaign called Casey’s Journey of Hope, which had staff donate therapy books to hospitals, brain injury associations, schools, rehabilitations clinics and organizations in Ontario, Newfoundland and British Columbia.

The purpose of the campaign was to raise awareness of brain injury.

And the company won the Communication Award for publishing articles in several rehabilitation journals, while presenting at local, provincial and national brain injury conferences. It also has a strong social media presence and offers online programs.
