Machias - The Down East Community Hospital Rehabilitation Department was recently the recipient of a generous donation $8,800. An anonymous donor provided the funding that enabled the department to purchase two new pieces of equipment for their gym. The items purchased were a total body ergometer and a recumbent stepper. This new equipment will assist therapists in providing treatment to patients with multitude of diagnoses, while also allowing them the opportunity to expand the practice and services offered to the residents of Washington County. Rehabilitation Therapists, Ashley Whitman Curtis, exclaimed, “The new pieces of equipment will enhance the treatment options for our patients. In addition, it is our goal as a department, to be able to offer athletic clinics for sports and agility, and balance and endurance clinics for the community. These new items will assist us in the integration and initiation of these programs. Down East Community and the Rehabilitation Department are very grateful for this amazing gift!”
