11 May Press Release – Waynesville Clinic
With New Clinic Opening, Carolina Pediatric Therapy offers Healing, Hope, and Homecoming in Waynesville
Waynesville, NC – Local families of children with therapy needs have a new reason to cheer. Carolina Pediatric Therapy announced today the grand opening of its new clinic in Waynesville. The Waynesville clinic joins Carolina Pediatric Therapy’s other locations in Asheville, Hendersonville, and Brevard as an extension of support, help, and hope for children in need of service across Western North Carolina.
To celebrate, an open house event will be held at the clinic on Friday, May 19th, from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM. Families are encouraged to stop by to see the clinic, meet the staff, and enjoy some tasty treats.
As the area’s only cross-discipline service provider, Carolina Pediatric Therapy offers access to a wide range of outpatient specialized therapy options, including physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy (and feeding therapy), so that patients can get care that is best suited to their individual needs.
Carolina Pediatric Therapy’s founder, Summer McMurry, a Speech-Language Pathologist, first opened the company with home and community-based therapy 15 years ago. Its first services were provided in Waynesville, Clyde, and Canton. Eventually, a clinic was opened in Asheville, and Waynesville families who needed services in a clinic setting have traveled to Asheville for treatment.
“With the Waynesville clinic opening, the company has come full circle, back to its roots. The commute to Asheville can be a burden for many children and their families. We look forward to helping families overcome the distance barrier to therapeutic care for their children in Haywood County and beyond,” McMurry says.“Our team is made up of experienced and talented therapists who are full of heart. We cheer accomplishments. We laugh, cry, and jump for joy with our patients. We celebrate every milestone with them. We are so happy to be able to offer this kind of integrated care to the area.”
The new clinic is located at 46 S Main Street, in downtown Waynesville, next to First Baptist Church, behind StateFarm on South Main Street. For more information, contact the clinic at 828.398.0043, or visit www.carolinapeds.com.
