As part of IBJI Rehab's committment to the community, our Philanthropy Committee has been able to associate IBJI with HealthReach, Inc., a local not-for-profit enterprise dedicated to improving and maintaining the health of medically underserved individuals in Lake County. Since December 2009, two of our therapists have been treating patients once a month in their Mundelein clinic. Thanks to donations from our own staff and our Corporate Headquarters, we have been able to stock a mini-gym in the HealthReach facility, complete with a treatment table, weights, balls, and measurement tools. We are treating patients of all ages, with all sorts of orthopedic diagnoses as referred by the physicians who also volunteer their time at HealthReach.
It is our pleasure to be able to give back to our local community in such a concrete way. We hope this program continues to expand as referrals increase and more therapists become available to help.
