Wyalusing’s ProCare Reopens
By David Keeler
Another Wyalusing business has bounced back after being closed by the devastating September flooding.
Although Wyalusing’s ProCare facility was able to set up shop and operate in temporary quarters at the former Wyalusing Elementary School after the flood, the business returned to its renovated Route 6 facility Monday and plans to celebrate with an open house set to take place on Thursday, Dec. 1 from 4 to 7 p.m.
Marcus Redline, manager of ProCare’s Wyalusing facility, said the building had over four feet of water inside during the peak of the flooding. “We managed to clean and sanitize some of the exercise equipment, and replaced the rest with new equipment,” Redline said. There is new carpeting and freshly painted new sheetrock throughout the building, and the layout has been changed a bit to provide an enclosed office near the front entrance.
Redline said Wyalusing’s ProCare employs six people. He said patients in need of physical therapy do not need a referral.
The open house will include Functional Movement Screenings for those ages eight and older, and a Metabolism Makeover Seminar hosted by Travis Barnes from 5 to 5:30 p.m. The first 20 people to attend the open house will receive free ProCare tee shirts. Discounted memberships to ProCare’s fitness program will also be offered during the open house.
Refreshments will be served and the open house will kick off with a ribbon cutting organized by the Greater Wyalusing Chamber of Commerce.
ProCare is open for physical therapy patients from 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Tuesday and Thursday. The facility’s gym is open to fitness program members from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday and from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday.
