Philadelphia, PaOn Wednesday, September 10, 2008 Magee Rehabilitation Hospital, a U.S. News&World Report Best Physical Therapy Hospital, opened a brand new Outpatient facility in the Watermark Building at 2 Franklin Town Boulevard in the Logan Square section of the city.

The new, 1500 square foot facility will treat residents of the Watermark, a retirement community, and will also treat adolescents (14&up), adults, and geriatrics from the surrounding communities such as Logan Square, Center City, and Fairmount.

"We were looking to expand our outpatient physical therapy services, and the Watermark was looking to partner with a physical therapy provider with an excellent reputation," said Rosemarie Battiato, Magee's Outpatient Administrator, who oversees Magees outpatient facility on Columbus Boulevard in South Philadelphia and the new Watermark site. "We're looking forward to serving the Watermark residents, and new patients from the community will be able to get an appointment within twenty-four hours, and walk-ins might be available as well."

The new outpatient facility can serve those who need physical rehabilitation due to orthopedic conditions, balance disorders, arthritis, sports injuries, spine surgery, neurological conditions and those who need post-surgical conditioning.
