Wilson Medical Rehabilitation Center and Get Fit 24/7 Open House Scheduled Wednesday, April 20

The Wilson Medical Rehabilitation Center has undergone several exciting changes over the past few months. Previously, the outpatient therapy department was housed within the Get Fit 24/7 Wellness Center, which proved to be challenging. With the growing number of therapy patients and staff, the Director of Rehabilitation & Industrial Therapy Services, Heather Odell, quickly noticed some core areas of improvement that were needed, mainly operating space and patient privacy. Plans for expansion were discussed, and soon the neighboring space adjacent to the fitness center was secured from the city of Neodesha. The expansion included adding three new treatment rooms, new workstations for the therapists, and a new reception desk for the front waiting area. The expanded facility allows for more flexible scheduling, as well as additional patient privacy.

The Wilson Medical Rehabilitation Center provides outpatient Physical and Occupational therapy services on-site. In addition to this, they also contract those therapy services with local home health agencies, Hometown Healthcare and Active Partners. Their staff includes four Physical Therapists, three Physical Therapy Assistants, an Occupational Therapist, and a Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant.

An Open House has been scheduled for Wednesday, April 20 from 5:00pm to 7:00pm to showcase the improvements made to both the Rehabilitation Center and to Get Fit 24/7. The public is invited to attend the celebration and tour the facilities as well as meet the staff members. Get Fit staff are excited to recognize seven individuals who have been gym members of the fitness center for 15 years or more with a special gift at 5:30 pm. Individuals who have been gym members for 10 years will also be recognize. There will be door prizes and giveaways given throughout the evening and light Horsd'oeures served. Get Fit 24/7 will also be offering a special for those who sign up for a gym membership at the open house. Wilson Medical Rehabilitation Center and Get Fit 24/7 are owned by Wilson Medical Center.
