Home Sweet Home
That’s the way our new clinic feels.
Families enter a warm lobby with a cozy fireplace and fresh coffee. Patient artwork brightens the walls. And as always, a friendly greeting awaits. Welcome to Memory & Movement Charlotte.
Our June move to 411 Billingsley Road represents the third physical expansion of the practice since it was founded in 2013 in a tiny office on Randolph Road. “The bookkeeper had to move her desk out of the way every time someone needed to use the men’s room,” Dr. Edwards recalls with a laugh. Even then he dreamed of a facility with space for multidisciplinary care for families – and today, that vision is a reality.
The new facility includes exam and conference rooms for each clinical team, dedicated space for neurological testing, a caregiver resource library, and an onsite therapeutic gym. Technology throughout allows families to participate in appointments via teleconference, engages both onsite and virtual participants in programs, and facilitates our clinicians’ participation in conferences and conversations anywhere. And there is space to expand staff, services and programs.
STABILITY FOR TOMORROW
The facility is larger, but monthly occupancy expenses are significantly lower. “This is the first office we’ve owned outright,” explains Executive Director Janet LeClair.
“We are so grateful to all our capital campaign donors and to McCulloch England Architects and Keach Construction, who helped us transition a tired building into an airy, comfortable clinic designed with accessibility and flexibility for the future in mind. The additional space, innovative design and reduced monthly occupancy expense allow us to invest more resources directly into patient care. We couldn’t be more pleased.”
John Chanon, a long-term board member and donor to the capital campaign remarks, “I see this as an investment in longevity. Demand for the unique care Memory & Movement Charlotte provides is growing every year. We believe that owning our facility represents stability for tomorrow.”
With Deep Gratitude
We are grateful to the individuals, organizations and foundations who invested in Memory & Movement Charlotte’s future through the purchase of our new office.
