SVH: Rehabilitation Team

An Interdisciplinary Team Approach For Efficient Outcomes

Patients receive an individualized plan of care

While the overall care in an Acute Rehabilitation Unit is prescribed by the patient’s attending physician, the unit’s medical director, a board-certified physiatrist, sees each patient daily. The treatment team may include specialists from:

  • Rehabilitation Nursing
  • Physical Therapy
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Speech Therapy
  • Recreational Therapy
  • Respiratory Therapy
  • Special Awareness Computer Center
  • Family Counseling/ Support Groups
  • Psychology
  • Social Services
  • Outpatient Therapy Services
  • Dietary and Pharmacy Services
  • Home Health

Patients receive an individualized plan of care that is custom tailored by our multi-disciplinary team. Therapy services provide evaluation, treatment and patient/family education prior to discharge in order to maximize recovery and functioning at home as well as while in the Acute Rehabilitation Unit.
