Passavant Rehabilitation and Aquatics


Passavant Rehabilitation and Aquatic Therapy, a satellite of Passavant Area Hospital’s Rehabilitation Services Department, provides patient and aquatic therapy services.

The facility is located off of the main Passavant campus, at 901 West Morton, Suite 16 (west side), inside the Lincoln Square Shopping Center. Robert Gordon, MD, an occupational medicine physician, has office hours at the facility.

Passavant Rehabilitation and Aquatic Therapy is specifically designed to meet all of your rehabilitation work-related injuries, which will allow you to return to previous activity quickly and safely. The licensed staff helps to manage work-related injuries in order for the patient to return to their employment as quickly as possible. The facility also provides prevention services which include:

  • Ergonomic job site analysis
  • Job description analysis
  • Pre-employment screening
  • Injury prevention training
  • On-site consultation for work injury management

Injury Management services include:

  • Functional capacity evaluations
  • Work conditioning
  • Aggressive physical and occupational therapy services

Aquatic therapy in the facility’s above ground pool offers ideal conditions for rehabilitation when it is difficult for patients to exercise on the ground, due to injury or surgery. The heat, buoyancy, and resistance provided by the aquatic environment are especially beneficial to patients experiencing pain, weakness, muscle spasms, limited range of motion, decreased strength, and limited weight bearing on a joint. The therapy requires no swimming skill or ability. Locker rooms and a shower are provided for the convenience of the patient.

 

Foundation Provides Grant for Volunteer EMS Providers

Posted on: September 19, 2017

Volunteer emergency medical services (EMS) providers in the Passavant Area Hospital service area are receiving a boost in their efforts to provide the best pre-hospital care to their patients. Pam Martin, executive director of the Passavant Foundation, announced today a $35,000 grant from the Foundation to seven local, volunteer EMS agencies for recruitment and training. Grant recipients include EMS providers in Arenzville, Chapin, Meredosia-Bluffs, Murrayville-Woodson, South Jacksonville, Winchester and Waverly. "The grant funds will be distributed in two parts. The first $2,500 will cover tuition, books and fees of volunteers enrolled in emergency medical technician/responders classes, with the second $2,500 used for the agency's greatest need, whether it be additional class training or the purchase of training equipment," said Martin. "Passavant is committed to provide continuing education for our first responder agencies and the Foundation is pleased to support this commitment." The grant will help the EMS providers in Passavant’s service area standardize training across all agencies. "As we integrate our existing EMS system with the Memorial Health System EMS system, it's important that we all follow the same guidelines," said Travis Wilson, Passavant’s assistant EMS coordinator. "This training will ensure that, plus strengthen our relationship with the agencies." Passavant provides emergency medical technician/responder classes for area agencies. The next series of classes starts in early 2018.
