MOORESVILLE, Indiana - Rehabilitation services at Franciscan Health Mooresville has a new look, larger space and more options to better serve Morgan County patients.
Renovations were recently completed to the Specialty Services office, which is located at 1201 Hadley Road, Mooresville. Staff at the complex – the only multidisciplinary approach of its kind in Morgan County – offers a full range of care, including hand, occupational, physical and speech therapies.
"The ability to offer all services at one location allows our patients with neurologic conditions to obtain multidisciplinary care for those who have been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, suffered a recent stroke and those who have balance-related health issues," said Rehabilitation Services Supervisor Jason Hutchison, PT, DPT.
The facility has nearly 4,000 square feet and provides a fully operational kitchen to help recovering stroke patients regain skills to prepare meals. It also provides special therapy equipment and technology and enhanced hand and physical therapy services.
Franciscan Health Mooresville also has a 900-square-foot aquatic physical therapy pool serving more than 40 patients each month. It offers arthritic patients physical activity and avoids pain associated with more rigorous exercise. Staffed by a certified aquatic specialist, the pool also helps those with neurologic conditions adapt to balance issues and learn how to avoid falls.
A ribbon-cutting and grand opening is slated for 1:30 p.m., Thursday, December 20, and hospital staff will be joined by Greater Mooresville Chamber of Commerce officials.
