Springfield Clinic Rehabilitation Services is slated to open a new rehabilitation facility in March at The Villas Senior Care Community in Sherman. Rachel Gasperin, a spokesperson for Springfield Clinic, says the new Springfield Clinic at The Villas will offer more convenient care for patients in outlying communities.
“Springfield Clinic has offered care to residents of retirement communities for years,” she said. “What makes this arrangement unique is that while our facility is physically located at The Villas, we will operate as an outpatient therapy center, welcoming any patient who wishes to receive therapy closer to home.”
The new facility, which will employ two physical therapists, is an addition to The Villas’ existing building. Gasperin said the facility opens in early March, though an exact date is not yet known.
“For years, Springfield Clinic has sought ways to improve our patients’ access to high-quality health care,” she said. “For instance, our Outreach Specialty Services program, which has been in existence since the mid-‘90s, provides specialty care in smaller, rural communities throughout central and southern Illinois. Making care more convenient for our patients is simply an extension of this commitment to our patients, no matter where they live.”
