Aquatic therapy or pool therapy consists of an exercise program that is performed in the water. It is a beneficial form of therapy that is useful for a variety of medical conditions. One benefit of aquatic therapy is the buoyancy provided by the water. While submerged in water, buoyancy assists in supporting the weight of the patient. This decreases the amount of weight bearing which reduces the force of stress placed on the joints. This aspect of aquatic therapy is especially useful for patients with arthritis and healing fractured bones.

Vereen Rehabilitation Center is named after Moultrie’s Vereen family. Since the 1930’s, the Vereen family has supported the medical community of Colquitt County. When the Public Works Administration approved a funding request for the construction of a new hospital in Moultrie contingent upon the community matching the request, Mr. W.C. Vereen stepped forward and began a grass roots campaign for the community to match his personal donation of $50,000. This community matched his gift, and Vereen Memorial Hospital was built in 1939. Today, the Vereen family still values access to quality healthcare in our county. Barbara Bunn Vereen served selflessly on the Hospital Authority Board from 1985 thru 1999 and held the position as Chairperson on the Quality Assurance Committee. Chairman W. Jerry Vereen, Chairman of the Vereen family foundation, and The Community Welfare Association have generously committed to support our Medical Foundation in its efforts to ensure quality healthcare and physician access close to home for future generations. Other trustees on the Community Welfare Association are Barbara Bunn Vereen, Harvey Bunn Vereen, and Lisa Vereen Zeanah.
