Providence Health & Services - Oregon is proud to partner with the Portland Timbers in opening a new sports rehabilitation clinic in the heart of JELD-WEN Field (formerly PGE Park), the Timbers' stomping ground. Providence Sports Care Center - a 12,000-square-foot state-of-the-art clinic replete with a resistance pool and sports simulator - will serve as the primary rehabilitation clinic for Timbers athletes and also will provide rehabilitation services to the public.
The center's team of experts - comprised of sports-certified staff, including orthopedic specialists - provides advanced care for people of all ages. The center offers:
- Physician consultation, evaluation and treatment services for orthopedic conditions and sports cardiology
- Sport-specific evaluation and treatment
- A deep-water resistance pool for acute injury rehabilitation and sports analysis
- A sport-specific simulator for injury assessment and analysis
- Diagnostic imaging
- Physical and occupational therapy
Providence health care professionals serve as therapists and trainers for the Timbers athletes, and will work with them through this innovative partnership that is serving as a model for other similar partnerships throughout the country.
The clinic will be staffed by five physical therapists and one occupational therapist that bring a combined 87 years of sports and orthopedic rehabilitation experience. Providence Sports Care Center will serve as Providence's cornerstone clinic, with additional satellite clinics expected to open throughout Oregon later this year.
The clinic, located at 909 S.W. 18th Ave., is open Monday through Saturday. Walk-ins and referrals are accepted, and patient parking is free. Providers or their patients may call 503-962-1900 for more information.
