Design of Monroe Clinic’s New Rehabilitation Center Begins - 10/06/15

Monroe Clinic just awarded the Rehabilitation Center project to design firm Kahler Slater.  We had competing firms review the project and present recommendations to enhance the creativity of design solutions and provide competitive pricing.

Kahler Slater, the same firm that developed the design for the hospital building which was completed in 2012, offers an intimate knowledge of the design and infrastructure that is in place in the hospital building where the new Rehabilitation Center will reside.

“Working with Kahler Slater will help facilitate design and construction continuity between the rehabilitation center and the remainder of the hospital building” states Steve Borowski, Monroe Clinic’s Director of Facilities.  Kahler Slater utilizes a Production Preparation Process to deliver efficient and effective work and services. Combined with Monroe Clinic’s own LEAN process approach the result will be a therapy and rehabilitation experience that offers the most value with effective and efficient treatments for patients.

The following therapy services that will be located in the new Rehabilitation Center once it is completed:

Occupational Therapy

Physical Therapy

Speech Therapy

Sports Medicine 

The Rehabilitation Center will be located in “shelled” space that was constructed in 2012 hospital building and left empty for future growth. With the ground floor access, proximity to Cardiac Rehab Center and locker rooms, the new rehabilitation center will be centrally located making it easy and convenient for patients.

Our team of therapists and rehab experts worked alongside the building project team to provide guidance and input regarding design of a rehabilitation facility that will best serve our patients. Their input includes everything from location and size of gym and therapy rooms to feedback on flooring and lighting selections.

Check back as the specifics of the Rehabilitation Center design become available.
