Therapy & Rehabilitation Center: Behind the Scenes - 11/15/15

Recently Monroe Clinic’s team of physical therapists and occupational therapists met with the designers from architectural firm Kahler Slater and project managers from CG Schmidt construction management firm.

The goal:  to design and develop a therapy environment that best serves our customers of today and tomorrow.  All while considering the impact and opportunities technology presents to therapy patients of all ages.

While space and equipment were the start of defining parameters—a lot of the discussion centered around how the work of physical therapy is done.  Searching for the best patient experience in terms of parking, entrance and then flow through the various stages and stations in rehabilitation were all considered.

Data on patient needs, traffic patterns and connections between various segments of therapy treatment were all part of the review process.

At times the process looked a little like a group jig saw puzzle. But in the end the extra effort and thoughtful conversation of many minds will result not just in a new and nicer looking therapy space—but in new approaches to therapy and rehabilitation services that more effectively meets the needs of our patients and customers.  Stay tuned as we finalize the Rehabilitation Center Design.
