1 About Magee Rehabilitation Hospital & The Jerry Segal Classic Magee Rehabilitation, a founding member of the Jefferson Health System, is nationally recognized for its outstanding programs in physical and cognitive rehabilitation, with comprehensive services for spinal cord injury, brain injury, stroke, orthopedic replacement, amputation, pain management and work injury. Magee is consistently recognized as one of America s leading rehabilitation hospitals in U.S. News & World Report s annual America s Best Hospitals rankings. Magee was the first facility in the nation to be CARF-accredited in brain injury rehabilitation. Magee, in conjunction with Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, serves as the federally designated Regional Spinal Cord Injury Center of Delaware Valley. Only fourteen such centers exist in the country. Magee s doors were opened in 1958 through the goodwill of benefactor Anna Magee. Her generosity led to the establishment of Magee as the first free-standing rehabilitation hospital in Philadelphia. Today, the hospital has over 500 employees committed to its mission: helping patients to build on strengths for independence. Independence is achieved through a team approach at Magee. Each patient has access to a physiatrist (a doctor specializing in rehabilitation medicine), nurse, occupational therapist, physical therapist, speech/language pathologist, psychologist, social worker/case manager and recreational therapist working with him or her. Magee s unique approach to rehabilitation involves patients and their families in the goal-setting process. Traditional therapies are enhanced by other Magee services which include day rehab, community re-entry, vocational counseling, peer support groups, nutritional counseling, prevention programs, job placement services, wheelchair sports and recreational activities. Community-based outpatient programs are offered as part of Magee s comprehensive lifetime follow-up system. Inpatient services are delivered at Magee s main facility located at Sixteenth & Race Streets in Center City Philadelphia. Outpatient programs are delivered in a variety of community settings including the Magee Riverfront, Magee Watermark and Magee Yardley outpatient centers.
2 Jerry Segal s Story & Support The Jerry Segal Golf Classic is a fundraising event that directly benefits individuals with spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, stroke and other disabilities at Magee Rehabilitation Hospital. Over the last 20 years, the Jerry Segal Classic has built a reputation of greatness and broken golf-event fundraising records, raising more than $9.4 million for Magee s patients. Jerry Segal with Segal Classic supporters, Scott Palmer and Bernie Parent. Following is information about the event s founder and namesake, Jerry Segal. Jerry Segal, a Philadelphia attorney, greets you at the door of the Center City law firm he started in He shakes your hand, walks you to his office, and shows you to a seat. He then sits at an executive chair behind a law partner's desk. None of this is unusual, unless you consider how many people told Jerry he would spend the rest of his life in a wheelchair. Jerry has walked with the assistance of arm crutches and refuses to be limited by anyone's notions about what he should and should not be able to do. A former Magee patient who has a spinal cord injury, Jerry ignores the fact that doctors told him he would never walk again. He has quadriplegia, which means he has no feeling from the neck down. Since beginning rehabilitation, "let me try" has been his philosophy. Take golf. You wouldn't think that a person with quadriplegia could play golf, but it is one of Jerry's passions. "Golf is a lot of effort for me. It's work, but I feel good about being able to do it." Jerry accepts that he isn't as good as he once was on the course. "But it gets better each time," he says. Because he has no sensation, he cannot really feel the club in his hand. Early in his effort to relearn the sport, he would sometimes lose grip of the club on his back swing. That made things pretty dangerous for those with whom Jerry played. Since then, he has learned new strategies which have improved his grip and lowered his score. Every Thursday, while Jerry was a patient at Magee, his friends would visit and take him out to dinner. When the idea of a golf outing came up, Jerry said, "Let's do it for Magee. It's payback time, and I owe them so much." From that notion The Friends of Jerry Segal and the Segal Classic developed into the region s largest single-day charity golf event.
3 Jerry Segal s Story & Support Jerry with his wife Carolyn Segal, Executive Director of the Segal Classic. On Friday, September 24, 2010, the group will hold its 21st annual Jerry Segal Classic at Green Valley Country Club and ACE Golf Club. The Friends of Jerry Segal is a non-profit organization comprised of an outstanding group of leaders. The mission of the group is to raise money to help the patients of Magee reach the highest quality of life possible. "Through the dollars we raise at this outing, maybe other Magee spinal cord injury patients can be where I am today, active, working, living independently, says Jerry. Maybe, with the extra support, they can accomplish what I have accomplished. Persons with disabilities should be given the freedom to do until they can't do anymore," he says, adding that the more he tries, the more he is able to do. "Who knows what strengths can come back. I always hope that tomorrow I'll be able to do more than I did today. I go through every day thinking things are going to get better." "Magee has done great things for me," he says. And Jerry has done great things for Magee. The proceeds from the first 20 Classics amount to $9.4 million. While it's true that Jerry Segal has a drive that is unique, his return to independent life after injury is just one of many success stories at Magee Rehabilitation Hospital. Patients are admitted to Magee with physical disabilities resulting from spinal cord injury, brain injury, stroke, amputation, and other injuries and illnesses. Their goal upon admission to the hospital is to improve their physical condition, gaining strengths for independence. These types of injuries never heal and patients must learn how to cope. For many patients, the goals for independence include returning to work, school and the community. With these goals in mind, the hospital serves as a valuable community resource. Dollars spent on care programs are not "charity" dollars. They lead to increases in independent and productive living. Thus, your sponsorship is a good investment in the community, and a worthy outlet for individual and corporate giving. The Jerry Segal Classic started in 1990 and has raised more than $6.2 million for patients of Magee Rehabilitation Hospital. All funds raised by the Jerry Segal Classic directly benefits Magee patients; no money goes toward administration or staff. Therefore, your investment will directly and totally benefit patients and programs at Magee Rehabilitation Hospital. Please review the following page for a summary of funds raised and programs supported.
