Whipper Watson Pool Programs
Acute Pool Program
The Whipper Watson therapeutic pool is the only hospital-based therapeutic pool in York Region. Structured exercise classes and one-on-one sessions are conducted by the orthopaedic physiotherapists with hydrotherapy training five mornings a week for inpatients and outpatients with acute orthopaedic, arthritic and neurological conditions. Pool therapy is especially beneficial for patients who are too weak or have too much pain to exercise effectively out of the water.
There is a $35 one time materials fee for this program.

Sub-Acute Pool Program

The sub-acute pool program provides the opportunity for continued pool exercises following discharge from an acute physiotherapy program. The program is managed by a Pool Coordinator who supervises and volunteers who have been trained by the pool physiotherapists. Programs are offered afternoons, evenings and Saturday mornings. There is a $30 per month charge for the program.  Participants are to purchase a pass at the start of the program
 
Independent pool Program
This Program is an additional pool program to complement your morning, afternoon or evening pool sessions. The Independent pool provides an opportunity to work independently on your prescribed exercise program in a familiar, warm, therapeutic environment.
This pool time is self- directed and does not have a hydrotherapist or one to one volunteer. This program has a lifeguard. There is a $30 per month charge for the program.  Participants are to purchase a pass at the start of the program
