Neuroworx Breaks Ground on a New Facility

SANDY, Utah – Neuroworx, a local non-profit, outpatient physical therapy clinic focusing on paralysis rehabilitation, announces a ceremonial groundbreaking for a new facility to be located at 9800 S. State Street in Sandy, Utah. The event is scheduled for August 27, 2014 at 12:00 pm at the Workers Compensation Fund building located at 100 West Towne Ridge Parkway in Sandy, Utah. An open house will follow from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm.

Neuroworx was started in 2004 to provide specialized therapy for individuals with paralysis due to spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, stroke, and other neurological conditions. It has provided care for approximately 1,000 patients primarily from Utah in addition to twenty-four other states and three foreign countries.  

“Due to increased demand, we simply need more room to serve more people,” reports clinic director and co-founder, Jan Black. For ten years, Neuroworx has consistently provided evidence-based yet very innovative neurorehabilitation in a time-liberal environment. “These injuries require extra time and effort,” notes Black. “More visits than typically provided by insurance, more time per visit, more intensive therapies, more specialized equipment; and more expertise. Neuroworx is designed to meet those needs.”

The new building will be a 24,500 square foot, two-level center including a specialized aquatic therapy area, an enlarged land therapy portion containing state-of-the art robotic equipment for gait training, and a gymnasium/multi-purpose room for wheelchair and walking practice and to promote wheelchair based sports. Both adults and children with neurological conditions will have access to this unique facility.  

“We are incredibly grateful for the cooperation, support and philanthropy of so many in our community to make this a reality,” says executive director and co-founder, Dr. Dale Hull. “We especially express appreciation to Workers Compensation Fund, the Sorenson Legacy Foundation, and the Larry H & Gail Miller Family Foundation for their generosity.”

Construction on the building is slated to begin in September 2014 with completion anticipated in Spring 2015. For more information contact Dale Hull, MD, MPA at (801) 619-3670.

ABOUT THE CO-FOUNDERS

Jan Black graduated from Utah State University in 1989 with a Bachelor of Science in Physical Education. She received her Masters of Science degree in Physical Therapy from the University of the Pacific in 1991.  Following graduation, she returned to Utah and began a career as a practicing clinical physical therapist. The majority of her practice has been focused on individuals with spinal cord injuries and similar neurological conditions. She has worked in the acute care in-patient rehabilitation setting, home health care, and in outpatient facilities. She co-founded Neuroworx with Dale Hull in 2004 and currently serves as the clinic director.

In addition to traditional land based therapy, aquatic therapy has been an important part of patient care throughout her career. In 2002, she began a more advanced form of aquatic therapy using highly specialized pools. Applying her clinical experience with this novel equipment has allowed her to provide innovative and very effective care for individuals with paralysis. She has presented aquatic seminars with a neurological focus to various clinics throughout the country because of her unique expertise in this area. Jan is married and has five children.

Dr. Dale Hull is a graduate of the University of Utah School of Medicine in 1985.  This was followed by a residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Utah Medical Center.  He practiced general Obstetrics and Gynecology for ten years in the south portion of the Salt Lake Metropolitan area. He completed a Masters of Public Administration degree in 2012 from the Romney Institute at Brigham Young University.

In 1999 Dr. Hull suffered a spinal cord injury resulting in paralysis from the neck down.  This life-altering event required Dr. Hull to devote approximately three and half years to his rehabilitation.  His physical therapist during this time was Jan Black. He and Jan realized there was an unmet need to provide others an opportunity to have access to the extraordinary rehabilitation he had experienced.  He co-founded Neuroworx with Black in 2004 and currently serves as the executive director.  During 2002 he had the opportunity to be an Olympic Torchbearer for the Salt Lake Winter Olympics.  In 2009, he completed an underwater marathon in the Neuroworx pool to commemorate the ten-year mark of his injury.  Dr. Hull is married and has four sons.
