Archbold ’ s New Advanced Therapy and Sports Medicine facility opens

In Archbold Medical

Center ’ s long history of growth and innovation , the building of a new facility for the health system ’ s Advanced Therapy and Sports Medicine ( ATSM ) department — previously known as Outpatient Rehabilitation — marked another new chapter and in many ways , a new era .
Within the last two years , the clinic has seen increased patient volume as the team expanded its sports medicine program through a sports medicine contract with Thomas County Central High School ( in addition to their existing contract with Thomasville High School ) and operational changes to increase access and provider referrals . With growth came the need to expand , which wasn ’ t an option at the previous location , a twobuilding clinic with a combined 5,800 square-foot imprint on Hansell Street .
