New Therapists, Expanded Hours at LRH
Lakes Regional Healthcare (LRH) recently contracted with new physical and occupational therapy providers. The therapists come to LRH with many years of experience and knowledge on a variety of therapy practices. Therapists include:
Brad Rohwer – Rohwer is a Doctor of Physical Therapy, has 17 years of experience, and focuses on orthopaedic and geriatric therapies. He is very knowledgeable on the most current, evidence based practices for improved patient outcomes. In addition to providing physical therapy services, as adjunct faculty, Rohwer has taught Exercise Science courses at Buena Vista University.
Jason Munden – Munden is a Doctor of Physical Therapy and a recent graduate of Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. His father is from Milford, and Munden is excited to live in the area and focus on sports rehabilitation.
Kathy Campbell – Campbell is an Occupational Therapist with 30+ years of experience in a wide range of healthcare settings, including the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.
LRH Vice President of Patient Care Connie Lange said, “We’re really excited about the new group. They provide hands-on care, a variety of therapies, and are committed to getting patients functioning as well as they possibly can after an illness or injury.”
LRH is in the process of making many improvements in their rehabilitation department. Another change patients may notice immediately is their expanded hours of service for therapy appointments. Patients are now able to schedule an appointment with physical and occupational therapists from 7:00 am until 4:00 pm Monday through Friday.
Lange said, “We are in the process of improving the physical environment where patients receive therapy services as well. We recently rearranged the space to allow for more efficiencies and increased patient privacy.”
The hospital is also considering developing an entirely new space for their physical and occupational therapy department in the future. Lange said, “We’re considering this for various reasons. One, it’s based on future discussions for facility expansion. Plus, it would allow us the opportunity to lay out a space exactly the way we’d like and make it as pleasing as possible for our patients.”
Those with questions about LRH’s therapy services are encouraged to call Physical Therapist Brad Rohwer at 712-336-8651.
