Cutting-edge aquatic therapy pools introduced in company’s healthcare facilities
Moorestown, NJ – Burris Construction Company, an innovative leader in the healthcare industry, is incorporating a radically functional aquatic therapy pool in the design-build process for its senior care and healthcare facilities.

Burris is the first company to introduce the HydroWorx 2000 Series aquatic therapy pool technology to New Jersey’s healthcare industry with its client, Genesis HealthCare, one of the nation’s largest skilled nursing and rehabilitation therapy providers. The Genesis Voorhees Center, for which Burris is the design and construction firm, is a 124-bed post-acute facility in Voorhees, NJ, dedicated to post-hospital short-stay rehabilitation and nursing care.

The HydroWorx 2000 Series, manufactured by HydroWorx International, Inc., located outside of Harrisburg, PA, is designed for the healthcare and sport industries. In addition to the pool currently used by the NY Giants, NY Jets, NY Mets, Philadelphia Eagles and Philadelphia Phillies, it is ideally suited for the aging population. Elder exercise, rehabilitation, maintenance and injury prevention is promoted in a stress free environment that eliminates fear of falling and accessibility issues. Patients simply walk or are wheeled onto the raised pool floor, then slowly lowered to any water depth up to six feet. The pool accommodates up to six people during therapy workout sessions and features:

Underwater treadmill
Resistance therapy jets
Hydro massage
• Variable water temperature
• Removable stainless steel support bars

”As an organization we spend a great deal of time developing new ways to support best practices in patient care” said William G. Burris, Jr., Chairman and CEO of Burris Construction Company. “Our association with HydroWorx allows us to give our clients the ability to provide in-house cutting-edge aquatic therapy, the very same therapeutic technology currently used by internationally recognized institutions such as Cleveland Clinic and Kennedy Krieger. And that’s exciting,” added Burris.

Burris Construction Company is a design-build group headquartered in Moorestown, NJ. An industry leader since 1973, Burris maintains an outstanding history of construction and development in the tri-state area. www.burrisconstructioncompany.com
