Archbold Opens New Therapy Clinic
Archbold Memorial Hospital recently celebrated the opening of their new Advanced Therapy and Sports Medicine clinic.
Now located on Pinetree Boulevard in Thomasville, the new facility is home to a full range of physical, occupational and speech therapy services, as well as a quickly growing sports medicine program.
Formerly known as Archbold’s Outpatient Rehabilitation clinic, the newly-named Advanced Therapy and Sports Medicine clinic is a spacious, 12,000 square-foot building with 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 computer-assisted testing on athletes recovering from injuries.
“Our clinic is 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. “Our new facility helps us provide more advanced care than we ever have, but with the same high quality, specialized treatment we have a reputation for as the therapy leader in this market.”
Archbold’s Advanced Therapy and Sports Medicine is home to a growing sports medicine program, and they are the exclusive sports medicine providers for Thomasville High School and Thomas County Central High School athletics.
Archbold’s new Advanced Therapy and Sports Medicine facility has an aquatic therapy pool, enabling the potential for patients to have land and aquatic-based therapy in the same visit. The benefits of aquatic therapy for patients include less pressure on joints, reduced swelling, decreased pain, ease of movement and faster rehabilitation progress.
The new facility has a much larger therapy gym for patients. The new gym area features several new pieces of equipment and additional amenities for physical and occupational therapy.
The new building has two dedicated rooms for pediatric and speech patients. The spacious rooms will allow therapists the option to privately meet with patients and their parents.
