MOUNDRIDGE – The physical therapy department at Mercy Hospital has more than tripled the amount of space available for therapists to work with patients.

During April, the department moved onto the main floor of the hospital. Physical therapy now has two spacious rooms with a small office between them.

Previously, the rooms were used for obstetric patients. Most recently, the rooms were for patients who needed longer stays at the hospital, as well as a recovery area for patients having a procedure done.

Before, therapists had a 250-square-foot room in the hospital’s basement. Now, the two rooms contain 800 square feet of space.
