The DMRC is a rehabilitation centre for the armed forces and began treating patients in October 2018, replacing Headley Court in Surrey, following a decision made by the Ministry of Defence to relocate clinical Rehabilitation to Stanford Hall. The centre provides neurological care, occupational therapy and physical rehabilitation using adapted gyms and a specialised Help for Heroes swimming pool complex.

William opened the new centre in 2018

Prince William officially opened the new treatment centre in June 2018 and he was the patron of the charity raising money for the centre. The facility was owned by the late 6th Duke of Westminster, Gerald Grosvenor, who started the project and was handed over by his son Hugh Grosvenor. William and his brother Prince Harry have previously visited Headley Court, as have Charles and Camilla.
