People have flocked to the regions during the pandemic, boosting some local businesses but also putting additional pressure on health services. BaiMed Physiotherapy will open a new clinic in Albion Park on Monday, and owner Michael Baines hopes the move will make services more accessible to residents of the Shellharbour area. “Regions have more people than ever since the pandemic, and Baimed’s philosophy is that we should have access to equal, if not better services,” he said. “With Calderwood and Tullimbar, it’s a huge area for young families, which ties in with our focus on women’s and children’s health programs.” Read more: What’s Behind: Shark Stories from Wollongong’s Past Tongarra Road Clinic adds to BaiMed’s six existing clinics in the area and will offer general physiotherapy services as well as postpartum-friendly services , people with vertigo, spinal cord injury and stroke, NDIS, pediatric pain management and PTSD. The clinic will employ four licensed physiotherapists, three licensed exercise physiologists and three administrative staff. “These are all new hires, and we have tried to employ locals who have left for their studies and are now able to return to work where they want to live,” Mr Baines said. “Now the bypass is in Albion Park, it’s like a hub of activity, with an easy commute.” To read more stories, download the Illawarra Mercury news app from the Apple Store or Google Play.
