ANNA, IL (KFVS) - The Union County Hospital has announced their aquatic therapy pool is finished and they will have a public open house to celebrate.
The open house will be Friday, Jan. 27 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. and a ribbon cutting is scheduled for 3 p.m.
The hospital says the new pool is located in the therapy services department next to the Physician's Annex on the west end of the hospital at 517 North Main Street. They say aquatic therapy services will be offered through the hospital therapy services department, which currently offers physical, occupational and speech therapies. The hospital says a portion of the cost of the new service line was funded by the Union County Hospital District.
According to the hospital, aquatic therapy is provided in a heated pool with temperatures ranging from 94-96 degrees. They say the warm water relaxes muscles, allows for increased blood flow and improved joint range of motion.
