MEDINA – The Medina Rotary Club last week welcomed guest speaker Nancy Fallon, Director of Rehabilitation Services for Orleans Community Health. Fallon is pictured with Bill Bixler, president of the Medina Rotary Club.

Fallon explained that Orleans Community Health has two facilities in Orleans County, one at Lake Plains in Medina for all services and one in Albion for physical and occupational therapy.

Orleans Community Health’s Rehab Department is a CARF facility. CARF is the gold standard in the industry and stands for Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities. This national recognition states that Orleans Community Health has made a commitment to meet nationally recognized standards for quality and to continually seek excellence in its services and programs to create a foundation for the high level of patient satisfaction.

Fallon further explained that the Orleans facilities have a team approach to providing this care involving the physician, occupational and physical therapies, dietary and respiratory as indicated for each individual. While Acute Rehab may mean 3 hours of rehab per day, Sub-Acute with specific debilities may need an hour and a half per day. Both in-patient and out-patient services are available.

Medina Rotary member Jenn Hill reported that Thanksgiving supplies were delivered to a Medina family.

Bill Bixler reported on the success of the Parade of Lights, with Medina Rotarians selling out with food and beverages. The Rotary Club will begin participating and supporting a local food pantry. Other projects are being planned.

The club meets the first Wednesday each month at noon at the United Methodist Church (the former Apple Grove Inn).
