Staff report



Madison Health is opening a new rehabilitation clinic to meet the growing therapy needs of the community, officials announced Tuesday.

The Performance and Rehabilitation Center (PRC) is located at the Madison Medical Center, 214 Elm St., London. The rehabilitation team will host a public open house from 3 to 5 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 1.

“Madison Health is the rehabilitation provider of choice for the Madison County area and we are excited to offer expanded sports medicine services and rehabilitative care,” said Myah Walker, director of Rehabilitation Services at Madison Health. “The opportunity to provide these services in our community means that more area athletes can receive quality care close to home.”

With a focus on sports medicine and injury prevention, the center features state-of-the-art equipment in an environment that will help athletes of all ages return to their peak performance.

Madison Health is also partnered with Nationwide Children’s Hospital to provide pediatric sports medicine care to area athletes. The collaboration offers each athlete improved access to specialized sports medicine care in the community, including the PRC.

“The collaboration with Nationwide Children’s will allow for advanced education and training not only to educators, but also physical and occupational therapists at Madison Health,” said Walker.

“Our team has opportunities to participate in continuing education courses at Nationwide Children’s and will allow us to grow in our efforts to provide the best rehabilitation services for our student athletes,” she said.

“In turn, it is our hope that we will share educational resources as well as sports medicine expertise and treatments that are proven to yield peak athletic performance with a strong focus on injury prevention.”

In addition, the center will offer functional capacity evaluations to help injured workers return to their jobs along with expanding work conditioning programs. General rehabilitation services are also provided at the PRC.
