Magee Rehabilitation, a member of Jefferson Health, announced on Monday it added an outpatient rehabilitation center at Jefferson Cherry Hill Hospital.
The new Magee Rehabilitation – Cherry Hill expands and enhances the existing physical medicine and rehabilitation services currently available.
According to Jefferson Health, Magee is one of only 14 federally-designated Model Centers for Spinal Cord Injury (SCI). Since 1978, it has partnered with Thomas Jefferson University Hospital to provide coordinated, lifetime care for people with spinal cord injuries and their families. As a Model Center for SCI, Magee is involved in up-to-date research, clinical care and education related to spinal cord dysfunction.
With the expansion, Magee joins Jefferson Health in New Jersey to expand the patient population receiving rehabilitative care. Services offered include physical, occupational and speech therapies, with several specialized programs.
“We’re excited to work collaboratively with Magee to bring a new level of expertise to the communities we serve in southern New Jersey,” said Jefferson Health New Jersey Director of Rehabilitation Brian Duffy. “New equipment will offer patients who have spinal cord injury or more complex neurologic conditions, a place for outpatient rehabilitation, closer to home.”
Samantha Adams will oversee operations at Magee Rehabilitation – Cherry Hill. She will work in tandem with the occupational therapists and speech language pathologists to bring patients a comprehensive array of rehabilitative care. Specialized services, such as a lymphedema program for cancer patients and VitalStim for patients needing help with vocal production and swallowing, will round out the clinic’s offerings.
Jefferson Cherry Hill Hospital is located at 2211 Chapel Ave., Suite 101 in Cherry Hill.
