(Watertown) Watertown Regional Medical has announced that work is underway on a new rehab and sports medicine clinic. The clinic will be located inside the Medical Office Building next to the hospital and will be across the hall from the Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Clinic, that often sees patients referred for rehab-related services. Once finished, all services currently provide at the Highway 26 clinic on 1684 Church street will be relocated.
Physical therapy will be located in the newly renovated space once occupied by DaVita Dialysis while occupational therapy services, including lymphedema therapy will be located in the existing space adjacent to Orthopedics and Sports Medicine. Director of Rehab, Sports, Medicine and Wellness Lisa Crogan says they are excited to bring all of their services under one roof. She says the proximity of these services to the Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Clinic will create a comprehensive experience to promote healing for their patients.
Watertown Regional Medical Center employs 17 Physical Therapists, two Physical Therapist Assistants, eight Occupational Therapists, two speech therapists, and four Athletic Trainers. Together, they provide rehabilitation programs to help treat patients suffering from a variety of medical issues, including, back and neck problems, dizziness and balance issues, work, sports and other injuries, joint replacement recovery, arthritis, lymphedema and more. During construction, the Highway 26 clinic will remain open to patients. Rehab and sports medicine facilities in Lake Mills and Juneau will also remain open going forward. Construction is expected to be completed by early this summer.
If you are in need of Rehab and Therapy services, contact your Primary or Specialty Care Provider about a referral. After a referral has been made, appointments can be made by calling 920-262-4220 or 920-262-4504.
