The Leahy Community Health and Family Center Physical Therapy Clinic
Partnering with the Community to Make the Connection between the Classroom and the Clinic
The mission of the University of Scranton’s Leahy Community Health and Family Center Physical Therapy (LCHFC PT) Clinic, as a part of the University's first student run free clinic, is to deliver exceptional patient centered care by providing physical therapy services to uninsured and underinsured residents of the University Area Community, educate future physical therapists through clinical learning experiences grounded in the Jesuit tradition, and to foster the partnership between The University, its students, faculty and staff, and the community through collaboration and evidence based practice of physical therapy.
What We Do:
The University of Scranton’s Leahy Community Health and Family Center Physical Therapy (LCHFC PT) Clinic strives to provide quality physical therapy screening, examinations/evaluations and interventions to the uninsured and underinsured members of the community at no cost. The clinic is located within the Leahy Community Health and Family Center.
The management of the clinic is run by a team of students from the Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program and treatment of patients is conducted by DPT students with supervision by DPT program faculty and licensed physical therapy clinicians from the community. This provides our students with an valuable hands-on learning experience that enriches both their lives and and the lives of their clients.
Support from those outside the University of Scranton is vital in the maintenance of the Leahy Community Health and Family Center Physical Therapy Clinic. If interested in donating time as a licensed physical therapist or as a volunteer, please contact us at (570) 941-6563 or Leahy.PTClinic@gmail.com.

To the Leahy PT Clinic community, our patients, and all those who have supported and participated in our clinic, a message from the Dean of PCPS:
“Because of necessary University precautions related to the coronavirus pandemic, the The Leahy Community Health and Family Center was closed until further notice in March of 2020. The space used for the Center in the lower level of McGurrin Hall will be converted for use by academic programs housed in PCPS for the fall 2020 academic semester. We appreciate the students, faculty and community members understanding during this difficult time of COVID-19. Please stay-tuned for news of when we will again reopen our various clinics: medical, counseling, physical therapy and low vision to the community.”
The Leahy Community Health and Family Center Physical Therapy Clinic is located on the bottom floor of McGurrin Hall. The address is 230 Kressler Court, Scranton, PA.
