MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – Construction has started on a new WVU Medicine Outpatient Rehabilitation Center at University Town Centre in Morgantown. The facility is being built adjacent to the WVU Medicine University Town Centre clinic and is scheduled to open in the second quarter of 2024.
The Outpatient Rehabilitation Center will house physical, occupational, and speech therapy services. Treatment options will include aquatic therapy, manual and exercise-based therapies, soft tissue and joint mobilization, post-surgical care, stroke care, functional capacity evaluations, lymphedema care, and more.
Jordan Feathers, M.P.T., M.B.A., has been named the director of the new center. He comes to WVU Medicine with more than 20 years of outpatient physical therapy experience and deep roots in the Morgantown community.
“We’re excited to be able to offer comprehensive rehabilitation consisting of three disciplines that all work together for the betterment of our clients,” Feathers said. “Being tied into the Epic medical records system will make it easier for our therapists to communicate with the patients’ physicians to customize their care to improve the overall quality of functional mobility and health of our community.”
Plans for the Outpatient Rehabilitation Center were announced last August, when the West Virginia University Health System Board of Directors approved $177.4 million in capital projects.
“We are always adding new providers and services to our outpatient clinics throughout the state and region based on the needs of our patients in those areas,” Darin Rogers, chief ambulatory officer for WVU Medicine, said. “Adding this state-of-the-art rehabilitation facility in Morgantown will fill a void in our continuum of care and further enhance the world-class care we provide.”
