Rehabilitation Programs at Wheeling Hospital
How does a rehabilitation program earn a reputation of excellence? Equipment, location, accessibility: all of these are certainly critical to the achievement of a patient's goals.
But at Wheeling Hospital, another component that adds to the excellent services in the fields of physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy includes the caring professionals who are leaders in their fields. This is evidenced by the number of therapists who have doctorate degrees in their field of expertise; by the amount of continuing education they obtain in specialty areas of practice; by their services to the community in special projects important to the area; and by participation in the education of students to fill future needs.
However, it is the therapists' commitment to working with patients and their families to achieve mutually determined goals to maximize independence in whatever setting the patient may be returning that really sets Wheeling Hospital's rehabilitation programs apart.
Rehabilitation at Wheeling Hospital serves people of all ages, and treats movement problems from any system, such as neurologic or musculoskeletal. Wheeling Hospital is able to meet all rehabilitation needs in a caring, professional and committed environment.
