Archbold Memorial Hospital’s new outpatient rehabilitation facility is on track to open in the late fall.
Located on Pinetree Boulevard, the new facility will be home to a full range of physical, occupational and speech therapy services, as well as a growing sports medicine program.
Along with a new facility comes a new name – Advanced Therapy and Sports Medicine.
“We’ve begun transitioning aspects of the clinic in preparation for our new facility that so when it opens people will already know it as the new name,” said Mark Lowe, Vice President of Planning and Marketing at Archbold. “Changing the name from Outpatient Rehabilitation to Advanced Therapy and Sports Medicine more accurately reflects who we are and what we do.”
The nearly 12,000 square foot building will include several new additions, including an aquatic therapy pool, a set of stairs that will allow patients to train for real-world situations after an injury or surgery, and new speech therapy equipment to perform swallow studies. Staff will also be able to perform more computer-assisted testing on athletes recovering from injuries.
“Our clinic will be the only one in the area that has all of these services under one roof,” said Jami Stephenson, OTR/L, CHT, Director of Advanced Therapy and Sports Medicine. “The new facility will allow us to continue to provide high quality, specialized treatment to our patients.”
