Westmoreland Rehabilitation Center keeps citizens on the move

With the growing number of senior citizens in King George and Westmoreland Counties, the demand for effective, quality health care has increased dramatically and Westmoreland Rehabilitation and Healthcare has become a popular solution for those seeking to recover from illness, injury or surgery.
“We emphasize getting people home,” said James Sparling, the administrator at Westmoreland Rehabilitation. “We want to get them back out and into the community.” Sparling has been the administrator at the facility for four months, coming to Colonial Beach from Richmond where he worked for Medical Facilities of America for 15 years.

The 66-bed facility in Colonial Beach serves both inpatients and outpatients, providing rehabilitation therapy and skilled nursing to help patients’ recovery from injuries or illness that has changed their lives. Occupational and speech therapists are available as well as state of the art physical therapy. The facility has a new gym for physical therapy patients.

The Colonial Beach facility specializes in conditions such as total joint replacement, rotator cuff repair, back and neck pain, sciatica, foot pain and walking difficulties. Westmoreland Rehabilitation is Medicare certified and accepts most major medical insurance.

Westmoreland Rehabilitation is one of three facilities owned by Cambridge Health Care of Richmond. Others are located in Richmond and Alexandria in Northern Virginia. The facility’s goal is “Recover. Rehabilitate. Regain.,” and, according to patients, they have a first-rate program aimed at getting patients back home.

“We believe we are the best place to go for rehabilitation,” Sparling said. “And also the best place to go for long term care.” Westmoreland Rehabilitation has been serving the citizens of Westmoreland and King George Counties for 19 years. It was operated by Mary Washington Hospital of Fredericksburg for many years before being acquired by Cambridge Healthcare.

Sparling was raised in Ohio. “I volunteered at a nursing home when I was a teenager and knew at that point I wanted to work with the elderly and our veterans,” he said. He has a Master’s Degree in Healthcare Education.

He moved to Virginia and then began working for Medical Facilities of America where he became one of the longest tenured employees before leaving last year to come to Colonial Beach. “I get up every day saying how lucky I am to work with older adults,” he said.

“I am privileged to work at Westmoreland Rehabilitation, where we give great care and excellent inpatient and outpatient therapy. It is very rewarding to see patients go home after coming to us very sick and thinking ‘will I every go home again?’ I know with our great caregivers it will happen,” Sparling said.
