Pediatric Rehabilitation Services Available at the Memorial Hospital East Medical Office Building
If your child needs Rehab Services, the highly qualified therapy team at Memorial Hospital East Medical Office Building (1414 Cross Street, Shiloh) can take care of them.
“Memorial outpatient services include physical, speech, and occupational therapy for pediatric patients of all ages,” said Heidi Hoskins, rehab supervisor and occupational therapist for Memorial’s Rehab Services. “We treat patients from birth up.”
Rehab Services has much to offer pediatric patients, including a sensory room with swings, different surfaces, and auditory and visual sensory stimuli. In addition, occupational therapy offers the Interactive Metronome, which is a brain-based rehab assessment and training program developed to improve processing abilities that affect attention, motor planning, and sequencing. Plus, speech and occupational therapy have recently started a specialized feeding program.
Types of patients seen
Memorial’s Rehab Services sees patients with all types of diagnoses, from pediatric stroke and cerebral palsy to autism spectrum disorders and sports injuries. “We see a lot of the athletes in the local area to help them with their recovery, getting back to whatever it is they were doing,” said Lauren Beach, Memorial’s director of Rehab Services and physical therapist. “If it’s a sport or some sort of a competition, we see a lot of orthopedic-injured pediatric patients as well.”
Children need a physician referral to be treated by Memorial’s Rehab Services.
