Rehabilitation Hospital Navicent Health

Lou Gehrig's (ALS) Clinic

In March 2010, the Georgia Regents University and Rehabilitation Hospital, Navicent Health partnered to bring middle Georgia the only ALS clinic (also known as Lou Gehrig Disease). Our ALS clinic brings together healthcare professionals from multiple disciplines specially trained in ALS, so patients can receive care from each during a single visit. Our rehab team consists of a neurologist, physical therapist, occupational therapist, respiratory therapist, registered dietician and speech and language pathologist.
