And it’s pretty hard to disagree with the ad’s opening line: “The Rehab Clinic at Good Samaritan Society-Spokane Valley is dedicated to helping rehabilitate you as a whole person – mind, body, and spirit.” “The Rehab Clinic” it mentions is none other than our wonderful Infinity Rehab therapists who work there.
