Out-Patient Therapy Services

Physical Therapy Speech Therapy Occupational Therapy
Following a comprehensive evaluation, licensed physical therapists carry out treatment protocols specified by your physician. In the new gym, our team performs outpatient treatment for those recovering from accidents, injuries or medical procedures and for those living with medical conditions affecting joints, muscles and nerves. Children with developmental delays and adults who have suffered a stroke, injury or other neurological disorders may benefit greatly from our program. Those who have difficulty speaking or those who are speaking but who are not speaking clearly can receive help at HVCH. We also provide therapy for patients who have difficulty swallowing and eating. Occupational therapists work to assist patients to learn or relearn “occupations” important to each individual. These occupations may include various activities such as play, handwriting, completing a work task, or getting dressed. The patients may be of any age, from infants to geriatrics.

 

Cardiac Rehabilitation Pulmonary Rehabilitation
Designed to help you on the road to recovery, our outpatient exercise program begins as early as two weeks following discharge from the hospital. The program helps you make the transition to the highest possible quality of life as you gradually achieve a higher level of fitness. This program runs twelve weeks, three times per week. Services are covered by Medicare and most insurances. The NIH defines Pulmonary (PULL-mun-ary) Rehab as “A broad program that helps improve the well-being of people who have chronic (ongoing) breathing problems.” PR may benefit people who have COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), sarcoidosis, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, or cystic fibrosis. This rehab program does not replace medical therapy, but should be used in conjunction with it for best results.
