Senator Celebrates Expansion of Wingate Healthcare in Fishkill

Fishkill, N.Y. – (09/23/11) – Senator Greg Ball (R, C – Patterson) celebrated the expansion at Wingate Healthcare in Fishkill, N.Y. by attending a ribbon-cutting for the facility’s new, state-of-the-art rehabilitation gym. The Gym at Wingate is designed with equipment that reduces the average length of a resident’s stay while maximizing rehab potential.

“As government responds to a faltering economy and continues to make cuts, there are those who are unfortunately falling through the cracks, unless the private sector steps up. Thank God for Wingate! Even given the reality of current budget cuts, the staff at Wingate have taken their service and attitude to the next level, actually raising the bar for their patients. This expansion raises the quality of care for all in our community while creating jobs at the same time. What a win-win!” said Senator Ball.

Physical therapy is provided seven days a week at Wingate Healthcare. After monitoring resident progress, a physical therapy team provides detailed reports to referring physicians that reflect critical indicators related to functional improvements.
