Dear AJPM&R readers,  

This issue of the Journal highlights 5 original research articles including an analysis of cost and length of stay of specialized centers for patients with spinal cord injury.  It has been argued that certain conditions (like SCI) require a level of rehabilitation that cannot be provided in post-acute facilities or levels of care other than a specialized rehabilitation unit.  This is a very important concept that has been shown to be true in stroke survivors and must be carefully examine in other patient groups.  In addition, an article on the topic of interdisciplinary alliances is an important read for researchers in the field.
