Via Christi Rehabilitation on Shannon Woods Moves to New Location




Via Christi Rehabilitation has moved its physical therapy center at 9727 Shannon Woods to a similar-sized location a block away — a move that will allow an expansion of its services and staff.

Like its current location, the nearly 9,000-square-foot location within Kansas Joint and Spine Institute’s building at 10100 Shannon Woods, features a canopied entrance and door-side parking as well as its own check-in and waiting area.

But it was already equipped with two Hydroworx therapeutic pools with underwater treadmills and video capabilities for doing gait evaluations, making it the ideal location.

“We’re excited to have such a vibrant, yet therapeutic environment in which to provide physical therapy,” said Kim Yearout, director of the Via Christi Therapy Centers. “Having the pools will allow us to expand our aquatic therapy program and staff and be even better positioned to meet the needs of our patients.”

Camden Whitaker, MD, of Kansas Joint and Spine, said he’s likewise pleased to have Via Christi in the adjacent space.

Starting today, Via Christi Therapy Center is seeing patients in the new location and continues to be open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday, from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday, and by appointment on Saturday. To schedule a therapy center appointment for this or any of Via Christi Rehabilitation’s other 10 locations, call 316-719-3030.
