On Wednesday, officials with the Regional Economic Development Partnership announced that Wheeling Jesuit University will relocate its physical therapy program to the Stone Center later this year.

WJU President Rick Beyer told WTRF.com, "We recognized the importance of downtown and we started to dream a bit about how Wheeling Jesuit could take advantage of the downtown community. We're so very excited to relocate."

It's a move that will pay off for the university and residents downtown.

"One of the things this is going to open is our pro-bono clinic. We'll see very poor people and people that don't have sufficient insurance. It's a great thing for us to give back to the community and for our students," added Craig Ruby the Director of Physical Therapy at WJU.

The whole process shouldn't take very long, classes will start at the Stone Plaza for the fall semester on September 3.
