Rehabilitation Services

Rehabilitation is an important part of recovering from an illness or injury. We have physical therapists (PT), occupational therapists (OT), and speech therapists (ST) here to help you get better. Rehabilitation helps optimize the abilities you have and aids you in maximizing your functional skills. We work with both inpatients and outpatients at the hospital. Some of our patients benefit from a combination of PT, OT and ST, and others only require one service.

Services we offer include:

Physical Therapy - Physical Therapy (PT) works to prevent, correct and alleviate symptoms; restore functional movement; increase strength and educate to promote health. Our therapists evaluate and treat problems associated with movement, balance, strength, coordination, wounds and pain. Physical therapists use a variety of treatments, exercise and education to coach patients in their return to full function. For a list of Physical Therapy treatments click the link below.

Speech Therapy - Speech Therapy (ST) is a field of expertise that works with people of all ages, from infants to adults to end-of-life. Speech therapists assist with swallowing management as well as speech and language skills. This may include teaching alternative methods of communicating. Speech therapists also work with people who have difficulty with memory, concentration and problem solving. For a list of SLP treatments click the link below.

Occupational Therapy - Occupational therapy (OT) is a skilled treatment that uses activity to improve function. It gives people the skills for the job of living. This may include relearning how to eat, bathe or write using specialized equipment or strategies developed specifically to compensate for a patient's limitations. Occupational therapists also specialize in hand/arm treatment and splinting and ergonomics. For a list of Occupational Therapy treatments click the link below.
