FORT WORTH, Texas – Baylor Institute for Rehabilitation, one of the state's leading providers of comprehensive physical therapy services, is set to open a new, state-of-the-art outpatient center in Weatherford, located at 2035 Ft. Worth Highway, Suite 300, on June 9. The center will offer specialized physical therapy services to patients with orthopedic and sports-related injuries, including ACL tears, strains and sprains of the neck, back and knees, and post-surgical rehabilitation, as well as other musculoskeletal conditions.

"This is our first clinic west of Fort Worth, so Baylor Institute for Rehabilitation is very excited about being able to provide physical therapy services to the Weatherford area. This location has something to offer the entire population – from the young athlete looking to return to play to the post-op joint replacement patient eager to return to an active lifestyle and everyone in between who can benefit from highly skilled, physical therapy services," said PJ Gillard, PT, vice president of Baylor Institute for Rehabilitation-Outpatient Services.

The new Weatherford center joins a continuum of care health network of more than 50 Baylor Institute for Rehabilitation outpatient locations throughout North Texas, as well as four free-standing inpatient rehabilitation hospitals, two inpatient rehabilitation units and home health services.

The Baylor Institute for Rehabilitation recently was named as a finalist for "Best Places to Work" by theDallas Business Journal.
