The Center for Sports Medicine & Rehabilitation and Orthopaedic & Fracture Clinic will hold an open house Tuesday, April 27, 5 to 7 p.m. at 1381 Jefferson Road in Northfield.
The event will celebrate both the addition and remodeling at the rehabilitation center and Northfield Hospital & Clinics 20-year partnership with Orthopaedic & Fracture Clinic. There will be self-guided tours, refreshments and an opportunity to meet the staff. There will be a short program at 5:45 p.m. when Robert Shepley, MD, and Brad Wille, MD, will be recognized for their work in developing orthopedic medicine in the community.
The centerpiece of the project, which began last summer, is the addition of 6,400 square feet to the center’s existing 10,000-square feet. It provides space for a new rehabilitation gym, 15 treatment rooms for physical therapists and a larger, more efficient reception space. When the addition was completed, the original space was refurbished to accommodate Children’s Therapy & Speech and the Work Systems programs, formerly located at a separate location on Professional Drive, and occupational therapy. OFC clinic has also undergone remodeling.
