The Sacred Heart University Physical Therapy Specialists Center officially opened its doors in a recent ribbon-cutting ceremony at the college's Fairfield campus.

The center previously existed in a shared-ownership arrangement, but is now being launched as an academic practice owned and operated solely by the university.

The center provides a professional setting for students to learn clinical skills, while simultaneously providing outpatient services in many specialty areas, including pediatrics, geriatrics, orthopedics, vestibular rehabilitation and neurologic physical therapy.
