Naval Hospital Offers HydroWorx Aquatic Therapy to Military Personnel

Middletown, PA-The Naval Hospital in Jacksonville, Florida will install a HydroWorx InstaFit therapy pool as part of a $35 million addition slated for completion in 2010. The plug-and-play system will be housed in the new Physical Therapy Department supporting health care and rehabilitation services for men and women in the military.

The portable, flexible design of the hydrotherapy pool will enable the hospital to place the spa virtually anywhere convenient to those needing instant access to the benefits of aquatic therapy. Military families, retirees, and active duty personnel will be able to take advantage of the InstaFit’s underwater treadmill for cardiovascular strengthening, muscle building and post surgical rehabilitation. Resistance jets and massage hoses, included in the exercise spa, will enhance performance training and offer deep tissue stimulation.

The Naval Hospital serves a wide range of general and specialized inpatient and outpatient health care needs. The Navy’s largest Family Physician Training Program is located at the hospital. Along with the new Physical Therapy space and HydroWorx rehab pool, the facility will add a surgical suite and administrative area.  The $35 million expansion underway at the Naval Hospital follows a $19 million addition to outpatient services in 1989.
