In May, the Pomerene Hospital Auxiliary donated nearly $6,000.00 to Pomerene Therapy Services for equipment needed in order to provide Physical Therapy services at the Pomerene Kinetics location.
Last month, Pomerene took steps to integrate Physical Therapy services at Pomerene Kinetics. A physical therapist is on site Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:30 am – 4:00 pm. A physician referral is required to receive Physical Therapy.
The auxiliary donation was used to purchase an ultrasound machine, hot pack warmer, cold pac freezer, an ultrasound 2-bottle warmer, a web-slide basic rail system, therapy steps, an adjustable flat rung agility ladder, and two ultrasound applicators.
Pomerene began managing Pomerene Kinetics in August 2014. Since that time, Pomerene has made great strides in transitioning Kinetics into a Medical Fitness Model. The facility has a Medical Director, Dr. John Vaccariello, and qualified staff who monitor the progress of members on the fitness floor. In January, Pomerene successfully added Cardiac Rehabilitation services at the facility.
“Clinical integration has been a goal of Pomerene Kinetics since the hospital began operating the facility,” stated Jay Creaturo, Pomerene Therapy Services Manager. “Integrating physical therapy services into the medical fitness model is just another way for us to live out our mission, “Caring for Our Community’s Health”. We are very grateful to the Pomerene Auxiliary for purchasing the necessary therapy equipment for this new service implementation.”
Pomerene Kinetics is located at 1237 Glen Drive, Millersburg, OH 44654. For questions regarding Physical Therapy Services at Pomerene Kinetics, please call 330-674-9066.
