HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital of Franklin Welcomes Scott Craig, M.D. as Medical Director
HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital of Franklin welcomes the experience and knowledge of new medical director Dr. Scott Craig. Dr. Craig will work with hospital staff to create an individualized therapy plan and focus on providing a higher level of comprehensive care to patients overcoming debilitating illnesses or injuries.
While he may be new to the Franklin area, he is not a stranger to the HealthSouth network. Dr. Craig served as the medical director of Van Matre HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital in Rockford, Illinois, for 11 years. A magna cum laude graduate of Loyola University, he completed his medical studies at Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine and his residency in physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R) at Marianjoy Rehabilitation Hospital-Clinics. He is board certified in PM&R and pain medicine. A two-time recipient of HealthSouth’s Medical Director of the Year Award, Dr. Craig has proven his exemplary medical leadership and his commitment to patient care.
Joining Dr. Craig at the hospital as independent practice physicians are Dr. Tia Aryal, a neurologist from Williamson Medical Center and Dr. Jennifer Santana, a nephrologist. The team will work together to assess patients’ medical needs to provide a thorough plan of care.
