Emerson Hospital recently opened the new Clough Family Center for Rehabilitative and Sports Therapies, located a short drive from the hospital at 310 Baker Avenue in the Concord Woods Office Park. With generous donations from the community, including the Clough family of Concord, the 16,000 square foot custom-built center is designed for optimal care of patients who need rehabilitation therapy for pediatric development, physical/orthopedic, occupational, speech language and neurological issues.
The center is the only program in the suburbs west of Boston to feature an aquatic therapy pool with an underwater treadmill and video system that allows therapists to observe patients as they exercise. The pool is similar to those used by top athletes including Bruins and Red Sox players. In addition to aquatic therapy, the center has dedicated gyms for pediatric patients and for those who are recovering from neurological conditions, including strokes and concussions.
“We are very excited to offer the latest advances in rehabilitation and sports therapies in a beautiful new setting,” said Christine Schuster, president and CEO of Emerson Hospital. “Thanks to the support of our generous donors in the community, the opening of the Clough Family Center for Rehabilitative and Sports Therapies allows us to keep patients close to home for advanced rehabilitative care.”
With the new Dr. Robert C. Cantu Concussion Center located in the Clough Family Center, high performance athletes, as well as those who are suffering from a concussion, have convenient access to baseline testing as well as clinical and neurological care by leading practitioners, including one of the nation’s leading experts on concussion diagnosis and treatment. (Please see related press release: “Dr. Robert C. Cantu Concussion Center Now Open” for more information about the Concussion Center.)
“The new rehabilitation center and its very talented therapists have contributed greatly to my son’s recovery; he has blossomed from working with the team,” said Kathryn Camgemi of Concord, mother of two-year-old Joseph who suffered a debilitating accident this winter and required physical, occupational and speech therapies for recovery. “The center is truly a one-stop-shop with all of the experts and latest equipment conveniently located in one place. It made the process so much easier. We’re very lucky to have access to exceptional care and rehabilitation just down the street from us.”
