Leading the Way
The Charles M. Magistro Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Center
Rehabilitation Services at PVHMC has a long history in our community. Established by Charles M. Magistro in 1954, we were the only physical therapy practice from Pasadena to San Bernardino. Throughout the years, Magistro played an integral role in the success and growth of the department, serving as director for 35 years. From this historic beginning, we have 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 into neighboring communities and now offers PVHMC outpatient clinics in Claremont, Chino Hills and Covina. This has allowed us to fulfill the needs of both our medical staff and our patients with convenient, quality rehabilitation services in those communities. All of our facilities are Medicare and Medi-Cal certified, as well as JCAHO accredited.
The scope and specialization of our services includes diagnostic specific therapy programs that improve the quality and efficiency of treatment. Utilizing evidence-based practice guidelines, our seventeen specialized “Get Well” programs are led by therapists with advanced certification. Our six “Stay Well” programs are designed to pick up where regular treatments leave off, giving patients a cash-pay alternative for aftercare.
Dedication to Learning
Our staff participates regularly in continuing education and many serve as clinical instructors. This dedication to learning and teaching is reflected in our department’s commitment to physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech-language pathology educational programs, and through our support and training of students entering the rehabilitation profession.
Many of our clinicians are frequent speakers for community groups, athletic teams, fitness clubs, and local schools and universities. If you are interested in booking one of our speakers for your organization please contact us at (909) 865-9810.
