Zanesville, Ohio (June 1, 2020) – Genesis HealthCare System is opening a new facility to offer an enhanced patient experience for physical, occupational and speech therapy. Genesis Outpatient Rehabilitation will be located at the former Big Lots building, near Northern Lights Imaging. Planning for the outpatient rehabilitation project began more than a year ago and is projected to open in autumn 2020.

“We have outgrown our former location,” said Lisa Lynn, MA CCC/SLP, manager, Genesis Outpatient Rehabilitation Services. “We’re looking forward to providing the same expert care our community depends on in a warm and welcoming space.” The previous facility, the Genesis Center for Occupational & Outpatient Rehabilitation (COOR), is more than 30 years old.

The new location will offer convenient access, with plenty of parking, improved patient flow and wayfinding. In addition to general physical, occupational and speech therapy, there will be specialty services such as vestibular, lymphedema, counseling, Parkinson’s (Rock Steady Boxing), women’s health, sports therapy focused on running, throwing, concussion management and Sportsmetrics™.

“The additional space will give us the opportunity to expand services,” Lynn said. “We’ll be able to incorporate new technology and expand our sports therapy services such as running and throwing analysis and women’s health/pelvic control therapy – programs that we didn’t have the space to provide or enhance before.”

Renderings were made before the COVID-19 epidemic occurred. Social distancing will be in place in Genesis Outpatient Rehabilitation.
