Washington County Hospital-Total Rehab Care to raise funds

March 09, 2007

Washington County Hospital-Total Rehab Care (TRC) will host its first TRC 5K Run/Fun Walk on Saturday, May 12, at 8:30 a.m. at Martin L. "Marty" Snook Memorial Park in Halfway.

Money raised in the race will be used to raise continuing education funds for TRC's rehabilitation department, and go toward Washington County Hospital's Special Care Nursery, which specializes in physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech pathology services.

For more than a decade, TRC's therapy staff has provided specialized evaluation and treatment to all ages. Its therapists work with physicians to provide expertise and care to its patients, and its physical, occupational and speech-language rehabilitation programs at its outpatient facility are complemented by services at Total Rehab Care at Washington County Hospital and occupational rehab programs at Health@Work.

TRC now offers rehabilitation services in Washington County Hospital's Special Care Nursery. The Special Care Nursery allows babies born as early as 32 weeks gestation to be treated at Washington County Hospital. In addition to treating premature or low-birth-weight newborns, its neonatologists care for twins or triplets and babies with unexpected medical complications that arise during delivery.
