Groundbreaking for new aquatic therapy center

Albany -- Construction on South Georgia's first aquatic physical therapy center is underway.

Phoebe Putney's new heated therapy pool center will be built at Phoebe Northwest Convenience Center. The one million dollar aquatic therapy center will include two pools, using water heated to 94 degrees.

Ninety percent of rehabilitation patients will be able to use the aquatic therapy. Physical Medicine Director Greg Brown said "The buoyancy, the heat, the hydrostatic pressure,and the constant resistance. Any patient can use these. In conjunction with land based therapy, and aquatic therapy, patients will get better quicker."

Phoebe's Aquatic Therapy center will be paid for with donations from volunteers. The center is expected to open in Mid- September.
