(Indianapolis, Ind.) – Rehabilitation Hospital of Indiana is pleased to announce that Dr. Katie White Stenson, M.D., will join the hospital’s spinal cord injury team as a physiatrist beginning Aug. 30.

Stenson comes to RHI after working as a Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation Medicine Fellow with Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, Ill. Prior to her fellowship, she was a resident at the same renowned Chicago hospital.

Stenson received her Doctor of Medicine degree from the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago, and her undergraduate degree from Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. She is a member of both the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) and the Association of Academic Physiatrists.

“Katie is a talented PM&R physician and we’re thrilled that she’s joining the team at RHI,” said Denny Armington, the hospital’s CEO. “We’ve built an extraordinary team of doctors, researchers and therapists who will continue to provide our patients with the best care and expertise available.”

“Katie will lead our medical professionals in helping individuals with spinal cord injury restore maximum function after their injuries,” said Dr. Flora Hammond, RHI’s chief of medical affairs. “Her arrival will add to our ability to improve lives after spinal cord injury through expanding available inpatient and outpatient services and conducting research.”

In addition to her role as a physiatrist with RHI, Dr. Stenson will also be an assistant professor in the Indiana University Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.
