More than 200 health care professionals, local elected officials and community leaders recently gathered for a ribbon cutting ceremony to officially open Aspire Physical Recovery Center of West Alabama.
Located in Northport, Aspire of West Alabama focuses on offering short-term rehabilitation services to the community. From the moment a person is admitted for rehab, a team begins planning for that person to recover quickly and leave the center.
“We review each patient’s goals and where they plan to return to after rehab,” Aspire of West Alabama Executive Director Vicki Phillips said. “For example, some patients need to be fully independent because they’ll be living on their own. Other patients have different goals because they’re returning to an assisted living facility and will have some assistance. We look at the individual’s needs, and what they’ll need to do when they leave our center.”
