Queensgate site is first of several exciting developments on the horizon
Senior physical therapist Joel Garcia instructs Michelle Wilson on the use of a piece of rehabilitation equipment. The new facility at Queensgate Towne Center features cardiovascular and strength equipment and a multi-cervical unit for treating neck pain.
Patients who need rehabilitation services now have another outpatient location option. The new facility opened at Queensgate Towne Center, 2501 Springwood Road in York last week.
“Opening the Queensgate site allows us to better meet the needs of our current and future patients,” said Adam Hawk, manager of outpatient rehabilitation services for York County.
“This is a new facility with an open and bright layout that was designed to improve the health and well-being of the people it serves.”
The facility features new cardiovascular and strength equipment and a multi-cervical unit (MCU) for treating neck pain.
This is an effective and complete system for the assessment and rehabilitation of patients suffering from neck pain, whiplash-associated disorders, headaches and general cervical spine disorders.
Eight staff members from Apple Hill have moved to Queensgate—three physical therapists, one physical therapy assistant, one occupational therapist, one speech therapist, one athletic trainer, and one rehabilitation technician.
Hours for Queensgate are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday to Thursday and 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday. To schedule an appointment, patients or referring physicians can call the new access call number for rehabilitation–1-877-Rehab13 (1-877-734-2213).
“This is just the first of several exciting developments for WellSpan Rehabilitation,” said Hawk. “We’ll be opening a new facility on Bannister Street in May and Apple Hill will undergo significant renovations this summer.
“Our goal is to look at the rehabilitation needs of the community and to find ways to expand to new markets that may currently be underserved. This strategy has been used successfully in Adams County and is now being expanded to York.”
After the Bannister Street facility is open, Apple Hill will close for approximately eight weeks for renovations. During that time, outpatient rehabilitation services in York will be provided at Queensgate, Bannister Street and York Hospital. Apple Hill will re-open in late summer.
As WellSpan Rehabilitation expands, the department is hoping to be able to offer specialized services at select locations.
For example, with the addition of the MCU machine patients requiring neck rehabilitation may prefer the Queensgate location.
“This is an exciting time for WellSpan Rehabilitation,” Hawk said. “From the construction of the Surgery and Rehabilitation Hospital to the new outpatient sites, we are making tremendous strides to improve the availability of rehabilitation services for area residents. I’m thrilled to be a part of this journey.”
