UHS Chenango Memorial Hospital’s CV Stratton Center Therapy practice and the SECO therapy office in Norwich have become UHS Therapies in Norwich.  As part of the partnership, they have moved their outpatient site to a new, convenient, specially-designed therapy center in the Eaton Center at 26 Conkey Avenue in Norwich.

As Dr. Drake Lamen, UHS Chenango Memorial Hospital’s President/CEO, commented at a recent Commerce Chenango Business After Hours held at the new office, “This successful move to the Eaton Center is the result of a strong partnership among three community organizations: UHS Chenango Memorial Hospital, SECO and the Eaton Center.” 

Dr. Lamen cited Terri and Gerry Seager and Allison O’Neill from SECO along with Randal Hadeed, owner of the Eaton Center for coming together with the Chenango Memorial team to benefit area residents.  “The therapies planning team knew what we wanted and needed to improve therapy services.  One of the key ingredients was optimal clinic space.  We are grateful to Randy Hadeed, owner of the Eaton Center, for his willingness to develop the space the practice now occupies to meet our needs.”  Dr. Lamen praised the revitalized space and the collaboration that made it possible. “This is a great example of what can be done when community partners bring community resources together to enhance community services.”  

Over the past few years, SECO has been providing inpatient therapy services at UHS Chenango Memorial Hospital and managing the staff at the CV Stratton Center. That partnership worked well for patients and prepared the way for this closer relationship. Services at the new site include physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy.

For an appointment or more information, please call UHS Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation in Norwich at 607-337-4227.

UHS Chenango Memorial Hospital is a member of UHS, a locally owned, not-for-profit, 916-bed hospital and health care system serving the Greater Binghamton region from more than 40 locations around New York’s Southern Tier.
