Watertown Regional Medical Center Opens Newly Renovated Rehab Center

(Watertown) Watertown Regional Medical Center recently cut the ribbon on their newly renovated rehabilitation space. Called the Center for Orthopedics and Rehabilitation, the space includes board-certified and fellowship orthopedic surgeons and rehab specialists. The center is located inside the medical office building attached to the hospital. Before construction of the new space, services such as physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy were offered at a clinic across town from the hospital. Orthopedic Surgeon and Joint Specialist Dr. Jason Habeck says the proximity of the new rehab space to their orthopedic offices will allow for greater collaboration and communication between providers and patients. The hospital’s orthopedic team includes three fellowship trained Orthopedic Surgeons, three Advanced Practice Providers, and features an enhanced Nurse Navigator program. The rehab team includes 17 Physical Therapists, two Physical Therapist Assistants, eight Occupational Therapists, two Speech Therapists, and four Athletic Trainers. Construction on the new clinic began in March and was completed on-time by Maas Brothers Construction. Patients arriving for orthopedic and rehabilitation services are encouraged to park in the medical office building parking lot and can access the Center for Orthopedics and Rehabilitation by using the building’s front entrance. To schedule an appointment with an orthopedic provider call 920-206-6500, for rehab call 920-262-4220.
