“We’re uniquely qualified and equipped to provide family-centered care from an individual’s birth to their golden years,” said Director of Rehabilitation Services Debbie Lessard.

Memorial Hospital West Outpatient Rehabilitation Center unveiled its new $6 million expansion facility that will bring an infusion of new programs, services, and technology for the South Florida community.

The debut of the 30,000 square foot complex, part of the Memorial Rehabilitation Institute, was marked by an open house event held on May 9 on the campus of Memorial Hospital West (703 N. Flamingo Road) in Pembroke Pines.

The facility’s makeover now provides a wide variety of medical and rehabilitation options, including the opportunity to continue a supervised exercise program in the adjacent Memorial Fitness Center.

“We’re uniquely qualified and equipped to provide family-centered care from an individual’s birth to their golden years,” said Director of Rehabilitation Services Debbie Lessard. “The facility currently serves more than 300 patients each day, and the additions give us the opportunity to achieve greater outcomes for many more.”

Enhancements in the rehabilitation area include separate, secure environments for both children and adults.

An all-new pediatric gym features zip lines, swings, monkey bars, a rock climbing wall, steppers, and treadmills to aid little ones overcoming neurological and medical/surgical issues.

There is also a multi-sensory room for kids, baby treatment rooms, quiet rooms, and specialized speech and feeding rooms. The reconfigured adult area includes upgraded rehabilitation equipment for cardiovascular, orthopedic, oncology and sports medicine patients. The center, which completed some of its improvements earlier this year, is also home to more than 50 therapists, many with specialized clinical expertise in advanced areas of physical, occupational, and speech therapy.

Memorial has also begun a “Return to Sports” program for athletes in the community looking to get to the next level through the use of technology, injury prevention, and proven training methods.
