Rehabilitation Services


With services tailored to individual needs of of both inpatients and outpatients, our partnership with Synertx allows us to offer innovative programs by a professional occupational therapist.



Occupational therapy is the use of purposeful activities to restore and maximize independence, prevent associated disability and maintain health. Procedures include the use of specific activities to improve or restore function (such as bathing, grooming and toileting), to compensate for dysfunction, or to minimize disability.
