Pocahontas Memorial Hospital is very proud to now offer Physical Therapy services in Green Bank on Tuesdays and Thursdays of each week. After months of planning and work, the first patient walked through the doors of the BFD VFD Green Bank Station to the new outlying home of PMH’s Physical Therapy team.
Two rooms have been outfitted for the team, with one serving as a Registration Office and the other a patient room with equipment. Green Bank resident Tom Melko, Physical Therapist, who worked for many years at PMH, will be returning to see patients in the new location, as well as Physical Therapist Bevin Saul, of Greenbrier County, and Director of Rehab/Physical Therapy Assistant Jason Riffe, of Marlinton.
PMH is extremely proud of its rapidly growing rehabilitation program. Rehabilitation services are available for anyone in need of treatment in the recovery of a surgery, injury (including sports injuries), illness, or other medical condition such as acute or chronic pain, vertigo, frequent loss of balance or falls, difficulty rising from a low seat, and/or difficulty with mobility in general. Physical therapy services have long been the hallmark of the hospital’s rehabilitation services, but occupational and speech therapies are also available, at PMH.
Services are available both on an inpatient and outpatient level. If your health care provider recommends that you seek one of these types of therapies, you can schedule an appointment with PMH’s program just like any other therapy office. You may decide to schedule your physical therapy appointments either at the hospital or at the Green Bank location.
If you have any questions about the Rehabilitation services at PMH or would like information on scheduling an appointment, please contact the department at 304-799-1015.
