In the acute care setting at P/SL, our services may include:

Our Pediatric therapists work in the neonatal ICU, pediatric ICU and on the general pediatric floors. They work closely with the entire pediatric team to ensure progress toward developmental goals. The child’s caregivers are an integral part of this team.
Our Adult therapists work with patients throughout the hospital, from the ICU to our Spalding Rehab Unit. Our Occupational Therapists work closely with the team to help you remain as independent as possible, return to your highest level of function, and to minimize barriers to living a full and active life.
No matter the age, the overall goal of Occupational Therapy is to maximize your function, and to reach your personal goals.
