Carthage Area Hospital Relocates Outpatient Therapy Services
It's new life for Carthage Area Hospital's former skilled nursing unit.
Outpatient therapy services have been relocated to the space that used to house the skilled nursing unit at the hospital.
The services were moved from the hospital's professional building on Bridge Street. The skilled nursing unit closed last August due to financial issues.
"We are currently sitting where the dining room was and next door we have the solarium, and the two combined spaces are perfect for the therapy that we are providing to the residents and the community," said Cheryl Tousant, director of therapy services.
Hospital officials say it's a benefit to have therapy services in the hospital so patients can easily access other services they often need, like radiology.
