Leading the Way
A History of Success
The department of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation at PVHMC has a long
history in our community. Established in 1954, we were the only physical
therapy practice from Pasadena to San Bernardino. From this historic beginning,
our department has grown to over 50 licensed therapists and has long been the
region’s most comprehensive and successful provider of rehabilitation services.
FOUNDER: Charles M. Magistro, PT, FAPTA
In the 1980s, our
hospital-based rehabilitation department began expanding its services
neighboring communities and now offers PVHMC outpatient clinics in
Chino Hills and Covina. This has allowed us to fulfill the needs of
both our medical staff and our patients with convenient, quality
services in those communities. Continued expansion remains a key
our business plan today. Our facilities are Medicare and Medi-Cal
