HSHS Sacred Heart & St. Josephâ€™s hospitals to open centers for outpatient rehabilitation services in Eau Claire
To meet the growing needs of local residents, HSHS Sacred Heart & St. Joseph’s hospitals are opening an outpatient rehabilitation facility in Eau Claire. Located at 1109 West Clairemont Ave., the 12,000-square-foot facility – known as HSHS Sacred Heart & St. Joseph’s hospitals Centers for Rehabilitation Services-Eau Claire, will provide outpatient therapy services including physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and work hardening/occupational medicine.
The new facility also will be home to a second location for the popular S.P.O.T.S. Pediatric Therapy program, which originated at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Chippewa Falls. (S.P.O.T.S. will continue to have a location at St. Joseph’s Hospital.) The facility also will offer the latest technology in balance testing, called NeuroCom® Smart Equitest.
“The therapy services offered by both hospitals are unique because we treat patients from infancy to older adulthood,” said Chris Klay, PT, director of Rehabilitation Services at St. Joseph’s Hospital. “Consolidating our services will enhance our capabilities by simplifying collaboration between therapists and giving patients a single, convenient destination for outpatient rehabilitation services for the whole family.”
“The opening of this facility is a gift to this community from the Sisters, because it brings together critical therapy expertise and technologies in one location that can help people with diverse therapy needs for issues such as autism, balance and falls, brain injuries, concussions and more,” added Martha Allen, MSN, director of Rehabilitation Services at Sacred Heart Hospital.
The community is invited to a ribbon cutting and open house for the new facility on December 17 from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. Registration is not required to attend this free event. Tours will be given and refreshments will be served.
HSHS Sacred Heart & St. Joseph’s hospitals Centers for Rehabilitation Services-Eau Claire will be open 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, and 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Tuesdays. To schedule an appointment, call (715) 717-4338.
