The MetroHealth System brings Sports Medicine and Physical Therapy services to Broadview Heights

(Cleveland) – Starting Monday, January 28, the new MetroHealth Sports Medicine and Physical Therapy office will provide care for sports injuries, bone and joint issues, back and neck pain and other orthopedic conditions.

In keeping to its commitment to convenience, MetroHealth is opening the sports medicine and physical therapy office one mile from its Brecksville location and in the same building as the Cleveland Sports Institute, at 1 Eagle Valley Court. Care will be provided by Heather Rainey, MD, a sports medicine specialist, and a team of physical therapists.Heather A. Rainey, MD

The new location is an extension of MetroHealth’s Rehabilitation Institute, which offers inpatient and outpatient therapy for patients recovering from a stroke, spinal cord or brain injury, a trauma or orthopedic condition. The Rehabilitation Institute offers outpatient physical therapy as well as a sports medicine program, and both will be available in the new office.

“Our goal is to bring services closer to where our patients are. And there was a need in the southern area of Cuyahoga County for access to sports medicine and physical therapy specialists,” said Michael Stern, executive vice president and chief operating officer of MetroHealth.

In 2016, MetroHealth opened the Brecksville Health & Surgery Center off I-77 and Route 82, which offers primary care, orthopedics, pain management, neurology, outpatient surgery and an emergency department. Many patients receive referrals for sports medicine and physical therapy services, and the MetroHealth Sports Medicine and Physical Therapy offices will be nearby.
