Patients who find themselves in need of various outpatient physical rehabilitation services at Pikeville Medical Center (PMC) are receiving therapy in a newly renovated facility.
Recently, PMC completed a tremendous expansion project to better serve patients requiring outpatient therapy. The newly renovated building located in the Riverfill across from PMC’s main campus, enables PMC to increase the volume of services offered to both pediatric and adult patients. The extensive renovation included an increase of 3,620 sq. ft. to benefit pediatric patients and 775 sq. ft. of increased space for adult patients.
A team of trained rehabilitation specialists helps patients achieve an increased level of independence based on their physical and mental abilities. PMC offers physical, occupational and speech therapy to help patients perform a variety of tasks from walking, to performing daily tasks, to basic communication and more. Therapy sessions can be scheduled to fit around a patient’s schedule and are designed around a treatment plan tailored specifically for each patient.
“Our goal at PMC is to help patients who have an illness or injury restore lost skills and increase their self-sufficiency,” said PMC Director of Rehab Services, Linda Derossett. “We also assist in helping to minimize or slow down the disabling effects of chronic health conditions with self-management strategies and the assistive products they require.”
The new addition is easily accessible and offers convenient parking, advanced technology, new equipment and therapy services to help patients improve their quality of life. PT, OT and Speech therapists provide services to patients Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
