This case study describes the implementation of a wellness center based on the integration of a Navy outpatient physical therapy department and a morale, welfare, and recreation cardiovascular center.
The logistics and services provided are discussed.
The productivity of the physical therapy department based on the monthly number of patient treatments is assessed.
A statistically significant increase in patient visits of 38% above the previous year was noted.
The newly established cardiovascular center averaged 1,500 client visits monthly.
This unique collaboration appears to hold promise as an effective wellness center concept.
