Rehabilitation Services


Physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, pediatric rehabilitation, and aquatic therapy services are all a part of the rehabilitation services offered at Passavant Area Hospital. These services help patients overcome such impairments as pain, disability, and dysphagia by assessing patients to discover their abilities; limitations; and potential for rehabilitation through:

  • Training patients and their families in the use and care of equipment
  • Treating patients by the use of physical agents and manual techniques to improve movement
  • Lymphedema techniques to decrease swelling
  • Vestibular techniques to improve balance and dizziness
  • Exercise programs

Athletic training (Team Rehab) is also provided through the Rehabilitation Services Department.

Patient care services are initiated upon referrals from physicians, osteopaths, dentists, podiatrists, and chiropractors. The physical therapist, occupational therapist, speech therapist, or athletic trainer assesses patient care needs during an initial evaluation, and treatment is delivered by licensed personnel.

The department is staffed by licensed physical therapists, physical therapy assistants, rehabilitation aides, athletic trainers, occupational therapists, occupational therapy assistants, speech therapists, and front office employees. Scheduling of staff is flexible to accommodate patient needs and varying patient load numbers. A licensed physical therapist is on duty anytime the department is open. To serve the needs of outpatients, inpatients, and Transitional Care Unit patients, department hours are:

Mondays and Wednesdays
7:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.

Tuesdays and Thursdays
7:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Fridays
7:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays

The goal of Rehabilitation Services is to deliver comprehensive services to individuals with physical dysfunction secondary to disability, disease, injury, or developmental delay in accordance with Professional Standards of Practice, departmental policies and procedures, and hospital standards. The goal is to maximize patient independence and assist their return to prior level of function. Services include:

  • Comprehensive assessments
  • Development of treatments plans
  • Delivery and documentation of care
  • Consultation
  • Re-evaluation
  • Discharge planning
