Update #2 – 3/22/2020: As part of our continuing efforts to protect patients and employees during this unprecedented global pandemic, EXCEL has temporarily closed most offices, while continuing to provide essential care at a number of Regional Therapy Centers located in:
- Fort Lee (201-224-8717)
- Hackensack (201-488-0488)
- Hoboken (201-630-8880)
- Livingston (973-974-9292)
- Mahwah (201-818-8711)
- Montvale (201-573-4969)
- Oakland (201-651-0121)
- Summit (908-738-1661)
Please rest assured that these offices are taking every possible precaution to protect your health, including following CDC guidelines regarding cleaning, sanitation, and social distancing. Our Regional Therapy Centers will be staffed with Physical Therapists, Rehab Techs, and Safety Technicians. These Safety Technicians will provide continuous cleaning and sanitizing of the facility. We are also screening each individual who walks in the door for possible COVID-19 symptoms and exposure. To make an appointment at one of our Regional Therapy Centers, please call the clinic directly or visit exceltherapy.com/schedule.
In addition, as many of our existing patients are simply unable to continue in-person treatment at this time, we have worked hard to identify a solution that will allow these patients to maintain their progress. We’re proud to offer a home-based TeleRehab alternative which allows existing patients to continue physical therapy under the expert guidance of an EXCEL physical therapist. Featuring live streaming, exercise assignments, and compliance tracking, TeleRehab enables patients to maintain strength and mobility, and continue working toward their functional goals during these extraordinary circumstances.
Thank you for placing your trust in EXCEL. We are heartened by the kindness and resiliency that we’ve seen throughout each and every one of our communities in the past few weeks, and look forward to emerging from this crisis stronger together.
Update #1 – 3/15/2020: As our local communities continue to grapple with the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), we’d like to highlight the measures that we’re taking to protect our patients and staff. All patients entering our clinics will be screened for possible symptoms and risk factors, and re-screened upon each subsequent visit. We ask that all patients wash or sanitize their hands prior to entering the gym or treatment area. Hand sanitizer and/or soap will be provided in every office.
Additionally, we are following the CDC’s guidelines to prevent the transmission of respiratory diseases like COVID-19 and have stepped up our already stringent cleaning and disinfecting protocols. During physical therapy appointments, patients will see employees sanitizing treatment tables, wiping down surfaces, and replacing linens.
We’ve asked employees to be especially cognizant of any potential symptoms or exposure. In addition, we are practicing social distancing within our clinics whenever possible. Private treatment rooms are available upon request.
We will provide updated information as appropriate. Please join us in remaining calm, diligent, and proactive. Feel free to reach out to your local EXCEL office with any questions.
