Van den Bergh joins Grace Cottage rehab

Physical Therapist Margaret van den Bergh has joined the staff of the Grace Cottage Rehabilitation Department in Townshend.

A practicing physical therapist for over 40 years, van den Bergh brings a wealth of professional experience to the department.

After earning her B.S. in Physical Therapy from the University of Vermont, she worked for Tidewater Rehab in Norfolk, Va.; for UVM’s child development clinic; and for Presbyterian University Hospital in Pittsburgh, Penn., working with inpatient and outpatient issues ranging from orthopedic surgeries, to spinal cord injuries and organ transplants. She was also director of Springfield Hospital’s Rehab Department before opening her own private practice with a partner.

Van den Bergh approaches her work with a focus on careful listening and on helping people feel better emotionally as well as physically. “Physical therapy is always searching for new ways to help people heal. I feel it is also important to help people laugh, no matter how grave the injury or illness.”

She has quickly integrated well into the Grace Cottage team. “Margaret has been a wonderful addition to our therapy team; she brings a depth of knowledge and skills, and a great sense of humor!” says Rehab Director Crystal Mansfield.
