Magee Rehabilitation Hospital, a physical and cognitive rehabilitation hospital located in Philadelphia, is set to break ground on a $4 million constructive project to build a Creative Therapy Center and Healing Gardens on its sixth floor rooftop.

According to a release, the new center is envisioned as a way to help move physical and occupational therapy sessions out of the gym and into the outdoors. It is hoped that this will give the patients an opportunity to leave the typical hospital environment to learn the skills that will help them continue their life with a disability.

“The Creative Therapy Center and Healing Gardens will support the goals of providing optimal healthcare while ensuring Magee remains a destination of choice and continually able to meet the physical medicine and rehabilitation needs of our patients,” says Jack Carroll, PhD, MA, president and CEO of Magee Rehabilitation Hospital, in the release. “Taking care of the body, mind, and spirit has always been my mantra.”

Magee Rehabilitation Hospital is a founding member of the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation’s NeuroRecovery Network.
