A Message To Our Customers,

Rehab Excellence Center’s Commitment to Patients and Safety

The world has been facing an unprecedented challenge with the COVID-19 Pandemic. Like you, we have been deeply concerned and want to do what we can to help keep our customers, communities and families safe and healthy.

Rehab Excellence Center takes the responsibility to our customers, our teams and our patients very seriously and we are working to make sure our customers have access to our quality care in the safest manner possible. 

After listening to the appropriate sources for accurate and up-to-date information, we have been taking sensible steps to make sure our preparedness plan reflects those inputs.  We will continue to monitor the situation and make any changes to ensure a high level of safety for our patients. 

What We’re Doing:

  • Providing physical therapy services in a small and controlled visit setting (Single Therapist Office) and typically just 1-3 patients in the room during the patient visit. Following social distancing guidelines is a requisite.

  • Following CDC guidelines, we kindly require our patients to wear masks to protect the health and safety of our patients and staff during their physical therapy visits. 

  • Equipping each REC facility with a Non-Contact Infrared Forehead Thermometer, providing fast and reliable body temperature measurement (1 second testing).

  • We are encouraging all of our patients to thoroughly clean their hands with either our alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water (and for 20 seconds or longer each time). Washing your hands with soap and water or using an alcohol-based hand-rub kills viruses that may be carried on the hands.

  • Our employees are also working diligently to ensure everyone is following our existing protocols for hand-washing, disinfecting and sanitizing equipment, treatment tables, waiting areas, bathrooms, door knobs, and other general areas.

  • Per the World Health Organization (WHO), we suggest patients stay home if they feel unwell and we can re-schedule their appointment for a later date. If they have a fever, cough, or difficulty breathing, we ask they call REC in advance and seek medical attention. Calling in advance will allow their health care provider to quickly direct them to the right health facility and better protect them and help prevent the spread of viruses and other infections.

We recognize this is a challenging time for all and we remain deeply committed to the safety of our customers, teams and communities.  Our patients and customers are the heart of our business and we thank you for your long-standing trust in Rehab Excellence Center, as we continue to navigate this uncertain period ahead.

Kind regards,

Rob Hicks
Founder & CEO
