Speech and Language Therapy

Speech language pathology is a healthcare profession that focuses on evaluating, diagnosing, and treating communication and swallowing disorders in individuals of all ages. Speech language pathologists are trained to work with all populations, including infants, children, teens, adults, and seniors.

A range of therapy services are provided for both pediatric and adult populations, including but not limited to:

  • Comprehensive Speech and Language Evaluations
  • Articulation and Phonology Therapy

Inpatient and outpatient speech language pathology services are available for both pediatric and adult populations.

Inpatient speech language pathologists work with patients who have communication and swallowing disorders related to their medical conditions. They collaborate with other healthcare professionals to provide comprehensive care and help patients recover their communication and swallowing abilities.

Outpatient services are provided to individuals who do not require hospitalization and can receive treatment on an outpatient basis. They provide individualized treatment plans and work with patients and families to achieve optimal outcomes using the best evidence-based practices

5 out of 5 stars

The care that was provided by The nurses (Cindy, Felicia Ruth) and staff was exceptional. The entire staff was very friendly and made you feel welcome. We received a call from Felicia the next day to check on my husband to check his pain level and do a follow up. The surgery area from check in to check out was well organized, clean, and up to date. Thank you to all of you for what you do so well and everything beyond your normal duties.
