Rehab center opens at Martha Jefferson House
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- A full-scale rehab center officially opened at Martha Jefferson House on Thursday.
Brookwood Health and Wellness kicked off outpatient treatment with a ribbon-cutting from the Charlottesville Regional Chamber of Commerce.
Brookwood offers physical, occupational and speech therapy.
It's been working with residents this past year and now the services are open to anyone in the community that needs them.
"There are many other places that offer these services but they are backed up. And, we're hoping that we can service this community as well as the outside community," Martha Jefferson House CEO Dr. Heather Parrott said.
Parrott said patients have made substantial progress and enhanced their lives in the first year of opening.
