The PT Department operates 7 days a week from 7:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m., with some later evening hours based on patient needs to accommodate day of surgery orthopedic patients. There are two PT Departments; one is located on the 5th floor of the Montvue Tower to serve our medical patients and one on the 3rd floor of the new Dogwood Tower to serve the orthopedic patients. Both PT Departments have full bathrooms with safety equipment installed as well as practice stairs for patients that will be going home and have steps to navigate. Our PT Department is very family-oriented and thrives on teamwork and collaboration. We have a department of over 35 PTs and PTAs that have a variety of experience from one year to over thirty.
