University of Mo. opens new pediatric rehab center
The University of Missouri Health System has opened a new pediatric rehabilitation center.
The new therapy center is located across the street from the university's Women's and Children's Hospital on Keene Street in eastern Columbia.
Dr. Timothy Fete, the hospital's medical director, says the new 8,300-square-foot building will allow doctors to expand the number of scheduled patient appointments by more than 100 each week.
The $1 million facility includes a 2,000-square-foot outdoor playground accessible to children who use crutches, walkers and wheelchairs. The rehab center also has specially equipped rooms for children with autism and multiple rooms for speech and physical therapy.
