Sir John Golding Rehabilitation Centre (SJGRC)

The Sir John Golding Rehabilitation Centre (formerly the Mona Rehabilitation Centre) was established in October 1954 in response to a major Poliomyelitis (polio) outbreak in Jamaica. The Centre, which was founded by Sir John Golding, a British Orthopaedic Surgeon, along with a small team of dedicated health professionals, served as the only public Centre in Jamaica and the English-speaking Caribbean and catered for the rehabilitation of patients afflicted with polio.

The Centre caters to the rehabilitation of patients with spinal cord injuries due mainly to traumatic or non-traumatic causes.  It has a capacity of sixty-eight (68) beds; 28 adult beds and 40 paediatric beds.  There is also an outpatient general orthopedic clinic on Tuesdays and an artificial limb clinic on first Fridays.
