Drexel Opens Parkway Health and Wellness Clinic in Center City

Drexel has opened a 23,000-square-foot facility in the heart of Center City Philadelphia that includes a new, central home for clinical services and research for the College of Nursing and Health Professions. Drexel will celebrate the opening of the Parkway Health and Wellness site and adjacent health research facilities at a ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house on November 5. Parkway Health and Wellness is located on the second floor of the Three Parkway Building at 1601 Cherry St., adjacent to the Benjamin Franklin Parkway and LOVE Park. The newly completed clinical and research space is part of a larger renovation project designed to move the majority of the College of Nursing and Health Professions academic offices into the Three Parkway Building earlier by 2015. Parkway Health and Wellness is now open to patients seeking care for physical and behavioral health concerns, providing a wide range of clinical services in the areas of Drexels expertise in nursing and health professions. These include primary care services by nurse practitioners and physician assistants, including an emphasis on womens health and occupational health services; physical therapy services for musculoskeletal and neurological conditions and improve runners performance; nutrition counseling including counseling focused on specific health conditions such as diabetes and heart disease; behavioral health counseling by couple and family therapists and through the creative arts therapies of music, art and dance/movement therapy. Services are provided by Drexel faculty in addition to doctoral and professional student trainees in these disciplines under the supervision of experienced faculty. Types of research include studies in biomechanical aspects of back and shoulder pain; treatment approaches for osteoporosis, depression and breast cancer survivors; music therapy for chronic pain; studies of the brains response to food; child and adult studies in physical activity and obesity; studies of running and gait; studies of lifespan caregiving; and studies of activity and participation in children with cerebral palsy. Certain health care services at Parkway Health and Wellness, including physical therapy, accept major health insurance plans. (At this time a limited number of plans are accepted for primary care services, with more plans to be added in the coming weeks and months.) For services less commonly covered by insurance, clients pay based on an affordable sliding fee scale.
