Euro-Peds National Center for Intensive Pediatric Physical Therapy opens standalone treatment center

Euro-Peds® National Center for Intensive Pediatric Physical Therapy announces the building purchase and opening of its treatment center at 3000 Centerpoint Parkway in Pontiac, Mich.; near I-75 and M-59 at the intersection of Square Lake and Opdyke roads. The first Center of its kind to open in the United States in 1999, Euro-Peds has helped more than 1400 children and young adults from Michigan and nearly every state achieve greater mobility. Many patients return to Euro-Peds annually for additional intensive treatment sessions to continue to gain increased mobility.
 
The new facility has large, private therapy suites for the entire family and features close, front entrance parking and extra-wide hallways for mobility equipment, biking, bowling and other fun therapy games at the one-level, 8,400 sq. ft. building.  The Center previously was located in leased space at Doctor’s Hospital of Michigan, also in Pontiac. Euro-Peds is privately owned and is no longer associated with Doctor’s Hospital of Michigan.
 
The new building also houses the Euro-Peds Foundation – a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to supporting families with grants for intensive physical therapy and providing education to children and their caregivers.
 
“This new Center gives Euro-Peds a solid presence in Southeast Michigan and beyond to help us effectively reach and teach children functional skills that lead to greater independence and health. The Euro-Peds ’ licensed staff and Foundation look forward to welcoming new patients and working with current families from all over the U.S. We also look forward to supporting other area healthcare providers with our treatment programs that are complementary to other treatment models at outpatient clinics and hospital-based programs,” commented Michelle Haney, PT, MSPT, Director of Euro-Peds National Center for Intensive Pediatric PT and Euro-Peds Foundation President.
