Sitka – On Tuesday, Feb. 25, Oceanside Physical Therapy (OPT) will relocate from 805 Halibut Point Rd. to the ground floor of 209 Moller Ave., below Sitka Long-Term Care. In conjunction with the move, OPT will be renamed to Mountainside Rehabilitation Clinic while continuing to offer the same specialties as the previous location.
The SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC) acquired the former Oceanside Therapy Clinic as part of the Sitka Community Hospital transition in August of 2019. The move to the Moller Avenue location and subsequent renaming are part of the efforts by SEARHC to streamline patient care in Sitka.
“The OPT move will allow the rehab team to provide the same high-quality care to our patients in a space much better suited to their needs,” said William Spivey, SEARHC Director of Rehabilitation Services. “The new space will allow for continued expansion of services to meet the needs of Sitka and the surrounding areas within the SEARHC Care Network.”
Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy will continue to be offered at Mountainside Rehabilitation Clinic weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. For questions, or to schedule an appointment at the new clinic, please call 907.747.1771.
Mountainside Rehabilitation Clinic is one of three facilities within the greater SEARHC Sitka Rehabilitation Services line, which also includes Mt. Edgecumbe Medical Center (MEMC) and Sitka Physical Therapy. Patients can access Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Speech/Language Therapy at MEMC, while Sitka Physical Therapy specializes in orthopedic and sports Physical Therapy.
