amen ocahontas Memorial PHospital began offer- ing Physical Therapy services in Green Bank in February 2019. At the time, PMH was the only agency providing such services in the area and patients were seen two days a week. Due to the phenomenal growth and demand for this outly- ing service, PMH began of- fering Physical Therapy five days a week in their beauti— ful space on Cass Road. Located in the former Meck’s Bakery, the light and airy space is both wel- coming and inviting. The building was completely renovated by Jacob and Ma— linda Meck and is filled with natural light and wooden laminate floors. The building offers a large waiting area as well as two separate patient treatment rooms. The view out the back step is of the impres- sive Robert C. Byrd Tele- scope at Green Bank Observatory.
