Pella Regional Health Center recently announced the addition of a physical therapist and athletic trainer to its rehabilitation staff. Amy Herdegen received her Bachelor of Science from Dordt College in 2005, and a Doctorate of Physical Therapy from the University of Iowa in 2007. She has worked at the University of Iowa and is a member of the American Physical Therapy Association.

Both women will be working in the main Hospital in Pella from 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
