Construction news!

Toasting at the Christmas Party. New Heights Physical Therapy in Vancouver WA and Portland OR.

The Dog Days of Summer have not slowed the new clinic construction one bit!  In fact, we’re on schedule and keeping our fingers crossed it stays that way.   Here’s the latest from 5736 NE Glisan St.:

The concrete ramp into the gym has been poured,

the gym floor has been prepped with rebar and insulation,

and the concrete is pouring today!

The roof has been sheeted and 12 skylights cut in.

Kevin and Donna have been going gangbusters… making cabinets, tables, desks, well, basically they’re building all the furniture to go in the new clinic!  But really, who could let all that beautiful old growth fir go to waste?

Up next: Framers will build new support for  the exterior walls and interior walls of the treatment rooms, then the roof and electrical!

The big move is still planned for sometime in November. We’ll keep you posted about plans for toasting, but it will be in the New Year!


Exciting news…. we’re moving!

New Heights is excited to announce that the Portland clinic is moving to a new location in late Fall 2014! Just a few miles from our current location, the new clinic at NE 58th and Glisan is twice the size of our current facility, offering more space and amenities to help you on your road to recovery.

What can you expect to find in our new clinic?

  • The gym will double in size, with no foot traffic through the area to distract you from your workout.
  • Skylights will fill the space with natural light.
  • Treatment rooms will be larger with better lighting.
  • Better area parking and indoor bike parking.
  • Eco-friendly construction with not a lick of waste: We are hard at work repurposing the old growth timber and metal found on site into desks, doors, cabinets, shelving, and tables.
  • Easy access off I-84 Eastbound.
  • Most importantly, our same great staff will continue to deliver excellent care!

Even more exciting? We plan on offering classes and events to promote wellness in the community. Let us hear from you, we’d like to learn what you’re interested in seeing in our new space! Acupuncture? Yoga? The possibilities are endless! And, since we’re all about pain reduction, please let us know what we can do to make this transition as pain-free as possible.
