Beebe Healthcare Rehabilitation Services Opens New Location in Rehoboth

Lighthouse Plaza Ribbon CuttingBeebe Physical Rehabilitation Services held its ribbon cutting ceremony and open house on October 24, celebrating its recent opening at Lighthouse Plaza in Rehoboth Beach (formerly housing QVC). The office moved from its previous location at the Bookhammer Outpatient Center on Rt. 24. The new address is 19324 Lighthouse Plaza Blvd. in Rehoboth Beach, directly off Route 1 near Giant Food.

This new location will offer a breadth of physical rehabilitation services, including physical and occupational therapy, and speech language pathology. It will also offer unique sub-services, such as lymphedema management, dry needling, cupping, vestibular therapy, and newly offered pediatric physical therapy.

Speaking at the ceremony, Lieutenant Governor Bethany Hall-Long expressed her excitement and support of Beebe’s new and expanded Physical Rehabilitation Center, calling out the need for this service in caring for the aging demographics of the area. Grateful patient Michelle Schaffner also shared words about her positive, encouraging experience with members of Beebe’s rehab team following a total knee replacement at Beebe Healthcare.

“This is a really exciting time for Beebe Healthcare. Our new Lighthouse Plaza Physical Rehabilitation Center allows us to provide state of the art Physical Rehabilitation Services to our patients. This includes physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech language pathology. In addition to the physical expansion, we have also introduced pediatric physical therapy services to the scope of services being provided. We are now uniquely positioned to provide physical therapy to everyone in the family,” said Joe DeRanieri, DM, MSN, RN, BCECR, executive director of Beebe Orthopaedic Services, Physical Rehabilitation Program and Integrative Health.
