The Centre for Neuro Skills will hold an invitation-only grand opening for its 25,000-square-foot new flagship clinic next week.

The new building at 5215 Ashe Road is twice the size of the center's previous facility, a news release from the center said. The center specializes in intensive rehabilitation and medical treatment for people recovering from brain injuries, the news release said. The new building is about two miles from the center's residential apartment complex.

The new clinic has been open since December, according to public relations and communications specialist Kelly Lopez.
