Kessler Foundation is a 501(c)(3) public charity dedicated to improving the quality of life for individuals with disabilities. The Foundation bears the name of Dr. Henry H. Kessler, an orthopedist who founded Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation in 1947 to provide comprehensive rehabilitation for people with physical disabilities and help them achieve maximum independence. Today the rehabilitation research and community employment programs of Kessler Foundation continue Dr. Kessler’s legacy, while Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation, the largest and most comprehensive hospital for medical rehabilitation in New Jersey, operates as a for-profit institution (within Select Medical).
