Your team

Here you’ll find an expert therapy staff with specialized training and expertise in both medical and surgical rehabilitation services, including physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech-language therapists.

Outpatient services

No matter what the reason is for needing therapy services, our comprehensive outpatient therapy program includes specialized expertise to meet your needs:

  • Physical therapy helps to restore or improve mobility, flexibility and range of motion, particularly after surgery or injury.
  • Occupational therapy helps restore functional independence in daily living activities, providing techniques for adapting your home or work environment for greater function and ease of use.
  • Speech and language services treat swallowing disorders, communication issues such as stuttering or problems with voice or memory.

Inpatient services

Physical, occupational and speech therapy services are available as part of these programs at several of our hospitals:

  • Acute care
    At all Virginia Mason Franciscan Health hospitals. Often, the faster you begin therapy, the better able you’ll be to restore function. Our therapists will begin working with you as quickly as possible while you’re in the hospital, and then help you make a seamless transition to our outpatient therapy services or health at home services.
