Hammonton Office Grand Opening
Bacharach celebrated the grand opening of our newest satellite facility in Hammonton on Friday, March 6. The ribbon cutting ceremony included tours of the facility, which offers a full range of physical therapy treatment options including neurological and orthopedic care as well as a joint day rehabilitation program, an intensive five-day, outpatient post-surgery program for hip and knee replacement patients. Hammonton Mayor Steve DiDonato; Richard J. Kathrins, Ph.D., president and CEO; and Philip J. Perskie, Esq., chairman, Bacharach Board of Governors were in attendance at the opening event.
Joyce Glick, PT, MHS, vice president of ambulatory services for Bacharach explained, “There was a need in the Hammonton area for outpatient rehabilitation services, and we are pleased that this new facility will be able to meet that need. Now local residents can obtain the services they need closer to home.”
The new clinical director of the facility, Lauren Houck, PT (left), joins the Hammonton Center after serving as clinical director at Bacharach’s Manahawkin facility. “I’m excited to be a part of bringing Bacharach to the Hammonton area. We offer treatment for a variety of diagnoses, including orthopedics and neurological disorders,” says Lauren. “I’m especially enthusiastic about our day rehab program, which offers a great way to recuperate following joint replacement surgery.”
A licensed physical therapist, Lauren earned her bachelor’s degree in kinesiology from the University of Maryland and her master’s in physical therapy Richard Stockton College of New Jersey.
