GAMC Rehabilitation Expands Treatment Areas
Glendale Adventist Medical Center (GAMC) recently expanded and upgraded some of its rehabilitation services. The expansion project, completed in early February, added 1,700 square feet of space and three additional treatment rooms in the outpatient facility. The outpatient center offers one-on-one adult and pediatric rehabilitation therapy in addition to group exercise and sports training classes.
The number one priority of Rehabilitative Medicine Services at GAMC is to assist patients in returning to daily life and the activities they love. Inpatient services are offered in the hospital's spacious rehabilitative wing, while outpatient services are provided in the 20,000 square-foot Therapy & Wellness Center located at 2560 Colorado Blvd. The Therapy and Wellness Center is celebrating 5 years in the community this year.
“Thanks to the high level of care and personal attention given to each patient, GAMC’s Therapy & Wellness has experienced amazing growth over the past five years,” says Marion Watson, director of Rehabilitative Services. “We’re excited to announce that we’ve expanded our facility to better accommodate this growth.”
In addition to the expansion of its outpatient facility, GAMC upgraded its inpatient rehabilitation therapy areas, including the training “kitchen” and simulated activities of daily living areas. These upgrades were made possible by a generous donation to the hospital from an anonymous donor.
