Parma Community General Hospital has a 7,500 square foot therapy center with a separate entrance within the facility, including a therapy pool and aquatic treadmill, seven consultation and treatment rooms and a therapy gym.
Members of the North Royalton High School Band, under the direction of David Vitale, will provide musical entertainment at the grand opening and dedication ceremony.
