CORTLAND, N.Y. — Guthrie Cortland rehabilitation services are now operating on the first floor of Guthrie Cortland Medical Center.

The health-care organization made the move to “better meet the needs of our patients,” according to a Guthrie announcement. The relocation from the third floor of the hospital makes outpatient accessibility much easier, with the department located adjacent to the hospital entrance, the organization said. The new setting also provides more space for providing care.

“This relocation completes a process we started last year, when we moved all outpatient rehab services from the Fisher Ave. building in Cortland to the hospital,” Scott Mayberry, director of rehabilitation and respiratory care, said. “We hope the ability to receive all our services under one roof, in an area more accessible to individuals with mobility issues, will enhance the experience for our patients.”

All services will continue in the new location. They include physical therapy (PT), occupational therapy, and speech-language pathology services. In addition, the specialties offered include swallowing evaluations, post-concussion rehabilitation (rehab), vision rehab, orthopedic and sports medicine, specialty PT intervention for Parkinson’s patients, pelvic floor/women’s health interventions, and pediatrics.
