The Sir John Golding Rehabilitation Centre (SJGRC), formerly the Mona Rehabilitation Centre, was started in 1954 during the polio epidemic. The centre, which was founded by Sir John Golding, a British orthopaedic surgeon, served as the only centre in Jamaica and the English speaking Caribbean which catered to the rehabilitation of patients afflicted with polio.
