Newman Therapy Services are being relocated to the main hospital building
On June 1, 2020, Newman Regional Health’s facility staff began the first phase of reclaiming existing space once used as part of the emergency department for future use by Newman Therapy Services.
This part of the hospital was in constant use from 1977 until the new Emergency Department are was completed in 2019. The therapy team will benefit from the completely rehabilitated space that includes updated technology and atmospheric controls.
Newman Therapy Services currently operates out of their location at 1024 W 12th Ave. They offer a multitude of therapy services including physical, occupational, speech, pediatric, specialty and pelvic.
The relocation to the new and improved area inside the hospital will provide for modern and more convenient care for patients. The move will also allow for expanded services and the uses of the latest technological advances in therapy services.
The relocation program is the designated funding cause of the Denim & Diamonds event for 2020.
You can make an impact on community healthcare through a donation to the Denim & Diamond cause.

July Project Status update:
According to Eric Schlup, Assistant Director Facilities Management, “The work being done at this point could be termed more of “deconstruction” rather than demolition whereas we are a functioning facility and typical demolition methods would not be appropriate.”
Schlup continues. “It is almost unimaginable the amount cabling, wiring, and ductwork that the space endured for updating during its 40-year plus service. We now have the opportunity to remove all of this down to the decking. It as well is being removed piece by piece to help hold noise and dust levels down”
- Trauma 1 and Trauma 2 have been stripped of its walls, studs, plumbing, and cabling
- MEDS and storage space have been stripped of its walls, studs, plumbing, and cabling
- Hallway and nurses’ station areas have had sheetrock removed
- Ceilings in most areas have been removed.
