Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, one of the premier providers of rehabilitation services in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, called on A M King to design and build a facility to not only house its existing rehabilitation operations but to allow for the enhancement and expansion of these services. The result is a 47,000-square-foot facility that is the first one-stop physical therapy and athletic training facility in the Winston-Salem area. Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center uses the 6,000-square-feet of medical office space to provide medical exams, physical therapy, massage therapy and X-ray services. The hospital works with D1 Sports Training to provide athletic training and rehabilitation on the turf field, basketball court and weight room which occupy much of the rest of the facility.

Starting with an existing dilapidated metal building on the site, A M King demolished all building components, leaving only the steel structure. The finished facility includes new framing, finishes, and electrical, mechanical and sanitary systems. Despite the difficulties of working with the aging, abandoned structure on the site and numerous weather delays, construction was completed and the building tenant-occupied less than seven months after A M King began design work.

Lexington Medical Center unveils new rehab facility

Wake Forest Baptist Health — Lexington Medical Center is unveiling a $1.7 million avant-garde project that promises to better accommodate those who are recovering from injury or illness and facilitate the process as well.

Wake Forest Baptist Health — Lexington Medical Center is unveiling a $1.7 million avant-garde project that promises to better accommodate those who are recovering from injury or illness and facilitate the process as well.
LMC will debut its new rehabilitation services department with an open house from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday.
The facility centralizes physical, speech and occupational therapy in one location in the front portion of the former business services complex on the campus. The new space is approximately 10,000 square feet, triple the former space, which was scattered among four locations at the medical center.
Plans to expand and modernize the facility were announced by the hospital last spring.
"We are so proud and thankful to be in our new area," said Monette Frye, director of rehabilitation services and a licensed physical therapist. "We hope the community will join us in celebrating our grand opening to see how we help patients recovering from injury or illness return to their normal lifestyle."
The new area includes a gym with state-of-the-art equipment and a walking track for patients who need exercise to regain strength and improve balance as part of their rehabilitation. "The gym is the focus of our physical therapy and occupational therapy programs, helping patients recover from illnesses such as stroke, joint replacement surgery and injuries to muscles and nerves," Frye said.
Patient parking is located in front of the building on a level lot.
According to a news release, the new facility is receiving rave reviews from those already putting it to use.
"The open space and light makes the biggest difference," said Myra Thacker, a Lexington resident retired from Central Davidson High School. Thacker began her physical therapy in June. "The old space was like a cave. The large open space is a motivational factor to me. I'm willing to try something harder now. After my fall, I lost confidence, and my lifestyle was limited. After five months of therapy, I have regained my confidence and even feel good about driving again."
Karen LeClerc, who is retired from Davidson Eye and lives at High Rock Lake, had one knee replaced last year and the other one most recently. "I am doing awesome. This is a state-of the-art facility that I would recommend to anyone. There is more equipment and more space, and we are treated like family."
Carolyn Davis, a CPA and firm administrator at Turlington & Co., has been a patient several times over the years. "I appreciate the additional privacy in registration and in the treatment areas; that makes a big difference to me," she said. "The staff is wonderful, and now the facility matches the staff."
Jack Byrd of Lexington is a volunteer in rehab services, having logged 300 hours last year. "Most of our patients come for months, so I get to know them," he said. "We do have more space with light, more equipment and more privacy and easy access, but the best part is that we still have the same staff. They work miracles here."
"The environment for healing is better, and that is why we are here," Frye noted. "Our staff is fantastic and overjoyed at this wonderful opportunity to help people return to their normal lifestyles."
Therapists have experience in special areas such as stroke, lymphedema, vertigo and McKenzie back treatments, says Frye, a Lexington native who has worked at the medical center for 32 years.
LMC is able to increase the number of daily patient visits from 80 to approximately 100.
Kathy Sushereba, communications director for LMC, said funding for the project came from the Lexington Medical Center Foundation and Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. The foundation allocated funds from its various activities, including Sportsmen's Saturday. Lexington Medical Center employees also donated money to the project.
"We are grateful for the commitment of the foundation, which has made rehab services its top priority for several years," said Steve Snelgrove, president of Lexington Medical Center. "The support from the friends of the hospital has made a critical difference in our having a modern hospital that is a source of pride for the community."
Wake Forest Baptist Health has matched funds over $10,000 received by the foundation and given to the medical center since the affiliation began with Lexington Memorial Hospital in October 2008. The result has been $1.2 million from Wake Forest Baptist in donations to Lexington Medical Center, according to information provided by LMC.

Jessica A. Tate, MD - Neurology - Wake Forest Baptist Health

When people think of sports medicine, images of dancers, musicians, vocalists or artists may not immediately come to mind; however, the highly repetitive nature of these activities can result in injuries, especially due to poor technique or overuse.

To meet the needs of the performing arts community, Wake Forest Baptist Health has opened a clinic dedicated to performing arts medicine – the first of its kind in the region and one of just a few in the country.

The clinic is led by David Popoli, M.D., an assistant professor of orthopaedic surgery at Wake Forest Baptist, board certified in physical medicine and rehabilitation and sports medicine, and Denise Tickle, LPT, a physical therapist who specializes in performing arts medicine.

“I believe that a multidisciplinary team with diverse backgrounds and specialized training provides the best environment for helping prevent and treat injuries in this population,” said Popoli, who is also the consulting physician for the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. “Our team understands the unique demands of these patients, so we want to do all we can to help get them back to dancing, playing, singing or painting.”

Some of the common conditions that are treated include tendinitis, stress fractures, bony stress injuries, sprains, concussions, carpal tunnel syndrome, back pain, osteochondritis dissecans lesion (a bone condition that develops in joints) and relative energy deficiency syndrome (a disorder caused by an imbalance between calorie intake and energy expenditure).

Performing Arts Medicine includes physicians, physical therapists, hand therapists and certified athletic trainers and provides a single location for diagnosis, X-rays, therapy and equipment needs.

The clinic is now open at Wake Forest Baptist’s Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine – Stratford, located at 1901 Mooney St. in Winston-Salem.

Physical therapists (PTs) at Wake Forest Baptist Rehabilitation Services provide physical therapy to people of all ages with a variety of injuries and disorders. Upon referral from a physician, your PT will complete a comprehensive evaluation to establish a treatment plan specific to your needs and goals. Treatment sessions are typically 45 minutes and individualized, with the therapist treating only you.

Most physical therapy uses a combination of techniques to relieve pain and boost coordination, strength, endurance, flexibility, and range of motion. PTs often ask patients to use exercise equipment such as bikes and treadmills.

In addition to exercising the affected area, a PT also may treat it with heat or cold, electrical stimulation, ultrasound, massage, and water or whirlpool baths. In many cases, PTs massage injured areas and oversee the patient during stretching routines.

Physical therapists usually give their patients exercises to do at home. These at-home exercises work with the treatments and exercises done in the PT's office to help a person heal better, faster, and safely.
