OPTIMUM Health Solutions Tasmania has been operating out of Oceana in Mornington for the past five years and has grown over that time from one exercise physiologist to its current team of 17 allied health professionals, with plans to add more.
Optimum is a partnership between Oceana’s Dean Ewington and Marc Seymour who operates nine similar clinics throughout greater Sydney and regional New South Wales
“Our goal has always been to provide the local community with the best therapy and rehab services using the best staff and taking advantage of the purpose built rehab facilities available at Oceana,” Mr Ewington said.
“We have a team of occupational therapists, exercise physiologists, physiotherapists and dieticians, and we plan to add speech pathology to this in the near future.”
Recent upgrades at the clinic at Oceana has included a new children’s therapy room to help children with a range of disabilities or injuries.
The room boasts Hobart’s best child friendly therapy space that features a range of sensory, motor skill, learning, rehab, and social development equipment and spaces, along with a highly qualified team of paediatric therapists.
Optimum also has access to Oceana’s hydrotherapy and infants pools as part of its programs.
“We work with individual programs for those referred to us through the National Disability Insurance Scheme, as well as MAIB, Workers Compensation, DVA and Medicare, plus many private clients seeking to live life to the fullest,” Mr Ewington said.
“I’ve always loved helping people reach their best in terms of fitness and health, but it is even more rewarding to see the smiles on the kids and parents’ faces when they first see that they now have their own dedicated therapy space.”
Optimum has plans to expand its services to the northern suburbs in the coming months with a similar paediatric therapy room, rehab gym and allied health services to help more people in Hobart reach their potential.
