Reopening of the Park Rehabilitation Centre

19 Dec 2012 15:40:39

Park Rehabilitation Re-opening Following the completion of a comprehensive refurbishment programme, brave patient Ellie Duce, aged 11, has officially re-opened the Park Rehabilitation Centre (PRC). 

The much loved Rotherham facility was part of a review in 2011 which had the positive outcome of making the centre the heart of a rehabilitation village, with the help of its health partners, to revitalise the many facilities already located on the Badsley Moor Lane site.   NHS Rotherham funded the modernisation and improvements which enabled some internal reconfiguration and the installation of new lighting, windows and roof which will ensure that the building is energy efficient and provide a safe and secure environment for the people of Rotherham to improve their health and wellbeing. 

In April 2011 Ellie spent eight hours fighting for her life after she sustained a fractured skull, broken left leg and serious damage to the skin on her left foot when she was involved in a road traffic accident in Dinnington. 

Ellie’s mum, Beverley, said: “Without the rehabilitation that Ellie received and continues to receive at PRC, I don’t think she would be nearly as good as she is today.  I am very thankful to the support that she has received from the Trust’s therapy services team.”  

During the reopening event, users of the centre, TRFT’s Chairman Peter Lee, Sue Cassin of NHS Rotherham and  John Foden the Deputy Mayor along with  the Deputy Mayoress had a tour of the centre to witness for themselves the improvements that have been made for the benefit of the people of Rotherham.
