The grand opening celebration for Carson Valley Medical Center’s expanded 8,500-square-foot Rehabilitation and Outpatient Therapy Center is 4:30-6:30 p.m. Tuesday.

The new rehab center has tripled in size and offers individualized specialty care for patients in inpatient and outpatient programs affected by a number of diseases or injuries through physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy services, according to Rehab Services Manager Rene Hoogendijk.

“Our rehabilitation team strives to help our patients live up to their full potential and achieve maximum independence and mobility,” Hoogendijk said. “Our patients receive compassionate, personalized therapies to fit their individual needs.”

The center's pediatric physical therapy, sports medicine, and orthopedic rehab programs are expanding and offer new services including vestibular and neurological rehab programs. The expanded center reduces patient wait times, increased specialty care, and offers easier and more convenient access to outpatient therapy services.

The celebration will be at Carson Valley Medical Center, 1107 Highway 395, Building C, in Gardnerville.

All are welcome to attend.

The space that houses orthopedic rehab, sports medicine, and pediatric physical therapy programs has expanded from 2,800 to 8,500 square feet. The expandedfacility offers new services, technology, and opportunities for our staff and patients.

The new rehabilitation center is the first part of the larger hospital expansion, which broke ground in October 2021 and is due for completion in 2024. Over the next two years, the hospital campus will grow more than 55,000 square feet, an increase of more than 50 percent. This will allow CVMC to continue to support the current needs of the community and anticipate future needs. The expansion comes with no impact on patients or the cost of healthcare.
