Hacienda’s Therapy Gym Gets Redesign Treatment Thanks to the Arizona Diamondbacks
For the last 12 months, no one paid special attention to the construction activity quietly carried out behind the double doors of the therapy gym.
That is, until now.
One year after Hacienda Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) was awarded the 2017 Ken Kendrick Grand Slam Award grant for $50,000, the space is completely renovated and ready to be showcased.
“While we have always had great therapists and support staff in our therapy department, we have never had a gym that matched the exceptional therapy we provided. Now we do,” said Brian Henrie, Hacienda SNF Administrator, during the July 24, 2018 therapy gym reveal.
When requesting the grant, Hacienda originally asked for $38,000, but according to Debbie Castaldo, Vice President of Corporate and Community Impact with the Diamondbacks, the Diamondbacks committee was, “…so impressed with [Hacienda’s] presentation that we actually increased the funding to $50,000.”
Thanks to the Diamondbacks’ generosity, clients like Jazzmyne M. now have a space that supports them. Or, as Jazzmyne’s mom, Karina Cesena, puts it, it gives patients like her daughter, “A lot of hope.”
