MedWest-Haywood expanding therapy services with May 3 opening of MedWest Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine clinic at Urgent Care Center-Canton
  
Canton, N.C. – MedWest-Haywood is expanding its therapy and sports medicine services with the opening of MedWest Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine clinic on Thursday, May 3 at MedWest’s new Urgent Care Center-Canton. 
  
The clinic will occupy 2,200 square feet of space at the facility at 55 Buckeye Cove Road. The location will be staffed with a team of rehabilitation professionals who will provide a variety of services including physical therapy, sports medicine and occupational rehabilitation. 
  
Athletes suffering injuries will be able to get same-day assessments and treatment at MedWest Rehabilitation Services and Sports Medicine clinic, said Dr. Chuck Nettles, director of rehabilitation and sports medicine services at MedWest. 
  
“Our physical therapy staff will be there providing primary care physical therapy, and our athletic trainers will be housed at that location. This will allow for treatment of sport related injuries for student athletes from Pisgah High School, Canton Middle School, Bethel Middle School and the Candler and Erwin areas,” Nettles said. 
  
MedWest Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine also will be able to serve the needs of local employers like Evergreen Packaging by providing injury rehabilitation services, work conditioning, functional capacity evaluations and pre-employment strength screenings, Nettles said. 
  
People visiting Urgent Care Center-Canton who have acute physical therapy needs also can be assessed more rapidly with its close proximity to the new urgent care, Nettles said. 
  
MedWest Urgent Care Center-Canton will provide walk-in examinations from 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., seven days a week to people with non-emergency illnesses or injuries. The new facility is replacing the Urgent Care Center on the MedWest-Haywood campus. The community can get a preview of the new facility during an open house from 4 to 6 p.m., Wednesday, May 2. Haywood Pediatric & Adolescent Medicine also will occupy space at MedWest Urgent Care Center-Canton.
