CHICO, Calif. – Enloe Medical Center and Chico Sports Club are teaming up during the coronavirus pandemic.
Enloe Medical Center’s President and CEO, Mike Wiltermood and the owners of Chico Sports Club, Jeff Stover and Scott Hillard announced Chico Sports Club will temporarily house Enloe’s Outpatient Rehabilitation Program.
The Outpatient Rehabilitation program, along with other services housed at Enloe’s East Avenue campus is being relocated to provide space for the recently announced Federal Medical Site to provide additional bed capacity for Butte County hospitals.
“We are very grateful to Jeff Stover and his partner, Scott Hillard, for their collaborative approach to ensuring patients undergoing outpatient physical therapy continue to receive care,” Wiltermood said. “Their willingness to allow us to utilize their facilities and equipment during the limited time our facilities are repurposed in response to COVID-19 is a tremendous example of community support.”
Also, the owner of Chico Physical Therapy, Steven P. Snyder, has offered Enloe two treatment rooms and an exercise room. Chico Physical Therapy occupies space in the Chico Sports Club complex.
Patients accessing the space will be screened prior to entry to ensure they are not experiencing symptoms of respiratory illness. Patients who exhibit symptoms of, or have tested positive for, COVID-19 will not receive care at Chico Sports Club facilities.
“We appreciate the opportunity to utilize this space during this time of uncertainty and look forward to turning Chico Sports Club facilities back over to its members when Gov. Gavin Newsom’s stay-at-home order is lifted,” Wiltermood added.
