Your safety is our priority.
As we see an increase in patient visits, we are also receiving a lot of questions from new patients asking what precautions we are taking. We will continue to update our policies and procedures to adhere to the recommended CDC guidelines, as they continue to change. Many of these practices were in place at The Center before the guidelines were released by the CDC. our current steps and procedures are:
-Anti-microbial application to all surfaces
-Screening patients and staff members each day upon entry to the clinic, including taking temperatures
-All staff wearing masks, and requesting all patients wear masks
-Hand sanitizing stations in each clinic
-Schedule spacing to minimize patient to patient contact
-Treatment and exercise spacing within the clinics
-Disinfecting of surfaces and equipment after every use
-Hand washing between every staff and patient interaction
We want our community to know how diligent we are being in these procedures, and have confidence in seeking treatment at The Center. Let our team safely help you LIVE BEYOND LIMITS.
Is it safe for The Center to remain open?
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security released a memorandum on the identification of essential critical infrastructure workers during the Covid-19 response. Physical therapy has been identified as an essential part of our health care system, and it states that we as a health care facility have “a duty” to remain an available health care service.
Dr. Matos, an official with the Armed Forces Health Surveillance Center, Department of Defense Global Emerging Infections Surveillance and Response System, and the CDC shared his thoughts on the need for physical therapists during this crisis. “Physical therapists are essential in flattening the curve of the COVID-19 pandemic. They play a key role in keeping people they can help out of doctors’ offices and ER’s. This will not only free up the medical teams to treat those impacted by COVID-19, but also limit the exposure of those seeking the care of the physical therapist.”
Our leadership recognizes and supports this statement, as we continue to be an available resource to the community. If you are in chronic or acute pain, physical therapy can help you while keeping our physician offices and emergency rooms available to fight this pandemic. Please keep in mind:
1. The Center is a Rehab Agency, which means we are able to come to you and treat in your home if you don’t feel comfortable coming to the office.
2. We have a Telehealth platform to help connect with you in a different way with our therapists. Click here for information on our Telehealth System.
3. Consultations are available over the phone or via Telehealth with one of our PT’s to get guidance if you are uncertain of the best way we can help you (616)954-0950.
As of now, The Center will remain open under reduced hours and staffing to serve our patients. We do ask that if you are not feeling well or experiencing any symptoms to please stay home for your own health and the safety of other patients and our team.
