A healthier you positively impacts other aspects of your life. That is why the DiSepio Institute continually runs wellness programs for the public, to encourage general health and well-being. Examples of some of our wellness programs include:
Situated in the rural mountains of Pennsylvania, the DiSepio Institute for Rural Health and Wellness at Saint Francis University is a leading facility of its type in the United States. We merge state-of-the-art equipment with hands-on teaching in our academically rigorous programs. Our equipment and programs are cutting edge; we carefully combine them with a deep sense of compassion and our desire to help heal the local community.
We believe in a holistic approach to wellness, the importance of person’s interior and exterior health. The DiSepio Institute is home to many centers, all designed to bring some aspect of wellness to you. Whether you need rehabilitation or general maintenance, as achieved through our fitness programs, we are dedicated to healing the region.
The DiSepio Center for Rehabilitation is committed to providing individualized and effective care for our patients. We have proven treatment strategies for most musculoskeletal and neuromuscular injuries
Equipped with videoconferencing capability and high-tech audiovisual equipment, the main space of the Center is a symposium room for 90 people, which is divisible by a retractable wall into two separate rooms.
The gym includes a stretching and core strengthening area, a cardiovascular area with treadmills, elliptical machines, adaptive motion trainers, and upright and recumbent bikes; a strength training area with a circuit of exercise units for the upper and lower extremities; and a free weight area. Group exercise classes are also offered to students, employees, and the community, which include yoga, Zumba, kickboxing, and various circuit training classes.
Through a combination of cutting-edge technologies and world class multidisciplinary experts, including exercise physiologists and physical therapists, the HPL enables individuals to attain their maximum physical conditioning.
Faculty members in our Physical Therapy Department are leaders in the field. These professionals practice clinically in the DiSepio Center for Rehabilitation, while also teaching and guiding participants in our unique residency programs, including sports and orthopaedic physical therapy. These program participants treat real-life patients and perform cutting edge research and studies. Program graduates are eligible to sit for board certification in their chosen specialty area.
The labyrinth, is outdoors in a sunken courtyard between the DiSepio Institute and the mall. The indoor interfaith meditation room on the Institute’s second floor offers individuals and small groups an opportunity to meditate and pray, isolated from the building’s otherwise busy environment.
Staffed by a full cadre of medical professionals, including a Physician Assistant, a Registered Nurse, a Part-time Physician, and an Administrative Staff, the Student Health Center is your key for maintaining your health while on campus.
Play Works Toy Lending Library was founded in 2009 by Dr. Lorie Rowles and lends toys free-of-charge to families in the community. The program was designed to meet the needs of the community for all children from birth to eight years of age so that children have the opportunity to engage in play for development.
