Banner Del E. Webb Medical Center in Sun City West celebrated its 25th anniversary with an open house Saturday.

The event included speakers, a health fair and food.

There was a presentation by Dr. Mark Dekutowski from CORE Institute and the medical center’s new spine surgeon.

At the health fair, Marissa Johnson, an outpatient physical therapist, led interactive activities to help determine a person’s ability to keep their balance. She used a shuttle balance machine, which she described as “a wonderful machine just so we can retest your balance and see kind of what you have difficulties with. If it’s just the single-leg stance, lifting one leg up in the air or if it’s not using your hands or if it’s with closing your eyes. Just to kind of help retrain that whole neuromuscular system.”

Johnson also had a timed-up-and-go test, which determines fall risk. She placed a bottle several feet away from a chair and participants were asked to get up, walk at a normal pace around the bottle, then go back and sit down.

Approximately 300 people attended the open house.
