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.
