Newswise — The Johns Hopkins Rehabilitation Network is opening a new therapy clinic inside the acac Fitness & Wellness center in Timonium, Maryland. This model of business is becoming an increasingly popular way for health clubs and health systems to approach delivery of care, providing access to club members as well as patients in a community setting.
This new clinic helps patients progress beyond treatment and restoration of basic functionality to a lifestyle of regular physical activity and, in some cases, advanced athletic training. There are only a handful of gyms in the state of Maryland that have a program like this.
“It means a great deal for our institution to be able to bring care like this to the community,” says Pablo Celnik, M.D., professor and director of physical medicine and rehabilitation at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. “This is especially exciting because we can provide better medical supervision when patients remain on a path of wellness and continuous exercise.”
The new location has 2,400 square feet of clinical space, which will house physical and occupational therapists who treat a wide range of orthopedic, neurological, gait/balance, vestibular and pain disorders. The clinic will have private and open treatment programs and will include direct access to the acac Fitness & Wellness center’s health club.
An open house and ribbon cutting are planned to celebrate the opening of the center

Keynote speakers include Redonda Miller, M.D., M.B.A., president of The Johns Hopkins Hospital; Pablo Celnik, M.D., director of the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine; Chris Craytor, COO of acac; and Gregory Degnan, M.D., medical director of acac
This collaboration between an academic medical institution and health club, says Celnik, is the wave of the future. Presenters will discuss what this new model of care means to patients and to the fitness and health care industries.
