Palmetto Health-USC Orthopedic Center Rehabilitation Office Accepting Patients in Fairfield County

Staff Report From Columbia CEO

Thursday, May 16th, 2019

Palmetto Health-USC Orthopedic Center is excited to serve the Fairfield community with the reopening of the Fairfield rehabilitation center. The center, located at 80 U.S. Highway 321 Bypass North, Winnsboro, SC 29180, is open 8 a.m.–5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Fairfield County community members who are seeking help for their orthopedic rehabilitation needs – from neck and knee pain to stroke recovery to general physical conditioning – do not need to travel out of town for treatment. Palmetto Health-USC Orthopedic Center is available to meet these needs.

The Fairfield rehab center reopened in January 2019. The office previously was part of Fairfield Memorial Hospital, which closed in December 2018. Palmetto Health-USC Orthopedic Center assumed leadership of the Fairfield rehab center to keep it open and meet the need for compassionate care in the community.

“Our goal is to continue to support the residents of Fairfield County and improve the health of people in the community,” said John Hutt, director of rehabilitation services for Palmetto Health-USC Orthopedic Center. “We are thrilled to have these team members join our team."

With a team of two full-time physical therapists, an occupational therapist and, soon, a speech-language pathologist, the Fairfield rehab center is well-equipped to serve patients as young as 12 years old. The Fairfield team members have been a part of the local community for years. The Center is recruiting more physical therapists to help meet even more needs in the community.

To make an appointment with Fairfield therapists, call 803-296-2530 or have your physician fax a prescription to 803-758-0133. You must have a prescription from a referring physician to schedule an appointment. For more information about Palmetto Health-USC Orthopedic Center Rehabilitation, visit PHUSCMG.org/OrthoRehab.
