An injury can take you away from the active lifestyle that so many of us cherish living 30 miles out to sea. We’re here to help you recover and get you back on your feet so you can enjoy all the island has to offer again. Sports Medicine & Physical Therapy Associates of Nantucket Cottage Hospital is committed to providing the island with comprehensive physical and occupational therapy services. Our licensed therapists provide hands-on, one-on-one physical and occupational therapy sessions for patients with a wide range of diagnoses. Among the program’s highly-trained employees are eight therapists with a cumulative total of 95 years of expertise in taping and bracing techniques, sport-specific rehab, manual techniques and therapeutic exercise. Our state-of-the-art facility in Bayberry Court allows us to provide exceptional care, enhanced privacy for our patients, and comfortable, spacious setting dedicated to healing and recovery.
In 2014, the Sports Medicine & Physical Therapy Associates relocated to a new state-of-the-art facility just a short distance away from the hospital campus at 6 Bayberry Court. The relocation was made possible by the Hospital Thrift Shop, which donated nearly $300,000 toward this effort.
The program’s highly-skilled therapists can now provide exceptional care in private patient rooms and in an environment conducive to high quality treatment. Since moving to the new space, the number of patient visits has grown significantly.
“This new space represents a significant improvement for our patients and the staff of the Sports Medicine & Physical Therapy Associates of Nantucket Cottage Hospital,” said NCH President and CEO Dr. Margot Hartmann. “We’re so grateful to everyone who had a hand in helping this project come to fruition, and for the extraordinary contributions from the Hospital Thrift Shop.” Read more.
