Member builds advanced aquatic therapy complex
An aquatic therapy center complete with high-tech features shared by just a few others in Ohio, will now be part of a Mason retirement community.
Cedar Village, a Chamber member, recently broke ground on the $2.4M complex which will feature two warm-water pools, and a larger warm-water pool. The smaller pools will have features comparable to those at the Cincinnati Bengals training facility, Ohio State's Athletic Department and the Cleveland Clinic, including floors that serve as treadmills.
The facility will be called The Jewish Foundation of Cincinnati Aquatic Therapy Center to honor the Foundation as the largest donor.
Aquatic therapy offers substantial benefits not available with conventional treatments because water reduces the effects of gravity and allows patients to move with greater ease. That helps patients recover more quickly and with less pain than other treatments.
"We are thrilled to be taking rehabilitation services to the next level at Cedar Village," said Carol Silver Elliott, Cedar Village's President and CEO. "We have distinguished ourselves in the region for rehab and this is an important expansion of that service," she said.
Construction is slated for completion by mid-2014.
