Outpatient rehab arrives in Sellersburg

No major profit taking Wednesday after the recent run up on Wall Street. Oil prices have stayed in the range of $20 a barrell lower than recent highs.


60 people will be out of work come October because Ingersoll Rand is closing its factory in Shepherdsville.

The plant makes the bars on doors you push to release the lock.  But the work is being consolidated in the company's Indianapolis facility.

Ingersoll Rand says the Kentucky workers will be able to apply for jobs in the Indiana plant.


Like its American competitors, Toyota is forecasting lower sales this year.  The Japanese automaker is expected to produce 300,000 fewer vehicles this year.

Toyota sold more than 4.8 million vehicles worldwide in the first half, up 2% from the same period a year earlier.  The sales exceeded General Motors sales of 4 and a half million vehicles in the same period.

The numbers set up Toyota to potentially end GM's 77-year run as the world's top automaker by sales.


Outpatient rehab arrived in Sellersburg this week when the Southern Indiana Rehab Hospital opened for business.

While offering outpatient physical therapy, the location means patients won't have to travel during a time in their life that is difficult enough recovering from injuries or surgery.

For one woman who had knee surgery, physical therapy was next.  But not having to drive to downtown Louisville or even Clarksville, meant dealing with little traffic and only one stop light. It made her therapy a little easier to take.

Brad Kruer with Southern Indiana Rehab explains, "One thing we've had a lot of patients say, is they want to drive less.  So if we're closer to them, we're going to help them out a lot more and save their driving, depending on the age of the patient.  Also, you know, that helps them if we're closer to their home community."

Southern Indiana Rehab Hospital now has three facilities, with its other two in New Albany and Clarksville.

The business model is to bring the medical treatment to where the patients live instead of forcing them to travel to one central location.

Krur says, "It's a growing area in the community, the Sellersburg-Hamburg area, so we just thought we could serve the patients up here.  We had some requests from some physicians to offer therapy services in conjunction with Clark Memorial, we were asked to help them out in that area as well, we just think it's a growing area and we can provide the services needed in the community."

The Sellersburg facility is open Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
