YMCA Equipment & Pools

The Therapy Centers in Calcutta have partnered with the YMCA to improve the recovery of patients. People undergoing therapy can take advantage of using the equipment and swimming pools during their recovery.

Patients can receive therapies as an inpatient at East Liverpool City Hospital. Outpatient treatments are performed at The Therapy Centers at the Calcutta YMCA.
