Set to Move
Those services including Physical Therapy, Occupational & Speech Therapies, Wound Care and Cardiac Rehab were previously located on the ground floor of the building in workspaces that were constructed in the early 1990s.
Danette Tutor, Assistant Nurse Manager for Cardiac Rehab Services of MMC is excited about the new facility, saying, “We are grateful for the visionaries that established a cardiac rehab in our area and the continued commitment over the years to provide safe, quality care. The new space will allow for continued growth in a location that allows easier access with increased safety features and amenities.”
Since the Surgical Services department moved to its new addition in March 2020, the area that it vacated was completely remodeled as part of the long-term organizational plan for updating and growing the scope and capacity for care at MMC. The investment for the Rehab Services update was approximately six million dollars – much more economical than building a whole new wing. The vision for continuing expansion at MMC is based on re-using structures and repurposing what is available to keep construction costs down and be as resourceful as possible.
Jason Douglas, CEO at MMC says, “This much needed remodel will ultimately give our community members the best experience possible when they come to us for any Rehabilitation Service. It will enhance the efficiency and treatment capabilities of our staff. We are proud to showcase these important MMC services with this new modern and welcoming space.”
