University Hospital opens four new outpatient exam rooms for rehabilitation therapy

SYRACUSE, N.Y. – Four new outpatient exam rooms for University Hospital’s Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation have opened in the Institute for Human Performance, 505 Irving Ave.

The new exam rooms are needed to accommodate increases in patient volume in the hospital’s rehabilitation therapy programs. University Hospital began seeing rehabilitation therapy patients at the IHP in 2004. Today, the rehabilitation program at the IHP records more than 1,200 patient visits a month.

“We’re delighted with the new space,” said Lori Holmes, director of rehabilitation. “It provides our patients with more room and greater proximity to a full array of therapy options, which is ideal for rehabilitation program.” Holmes said the additional space also provides the program with the ability to take on additional patients.

The new exam rooms are located on the second floor of the IHP adjacent to the institute’s spacious therapy gym and track. Aqua therapy programs are offered in the nearby pool, which has a moveable floor to accommodate patients with limited mobility. The Central New York Sports Concussion Center is also located in the IHP. Parking is available in the lot behind the IHP.

The outpatient rehabilitation program at the IHP is open 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday.
