RENOVATED PHYSICAL MEDICINE AND REHABILITATION UNIT
OPENS AT VA WESTERN NEW YORK HEALTHCARE SYSTEM

 

VA Western New York Healthcare System (VA WNYHS) will celebrate the newly renovated Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Unit at the Buffalo site on Friday, March 23, at noon on the third floor, D-Wing. A ribbon-cutting ceremony along with tours of the unit will showcase the $3.6 million dollar renovation project performed by a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business, US Innovative. The unit expands capacity to serve almost 30,000 inpatients and outpatients annually and is in line with the Department of Veterans Affairs goals to improve access to care and modernize our system. In addition to providing occupational and physical therapy, the unit will conduct power mobility evaluations, as well as electromyography and rehab medicine evaluations for veteran patients.      

“We are pleased to have a newly renovated unit veterans can receive a wide range of rehabilitation services in Buffalo,” said Michael S. Swartz, interim healthcare system director.

All are welcome to attend this special event.
