In addition to our Inpatient care, we also offer Outpatient treatment for Speech, Physical and Occupational Therapies for those of all ages. Our Outpatient Therapy programs are derived from the understanding that long-term rehabilitative care is not always needed or desired. For some people, the best place to be throughout therapy, is in their own home. The mission of our faculty and staff is to improve patients' quality of life by returning them to the highest level of independence they can achieve through therapy, without making therapy the center of life.

There are three therapies available from our Outpatient Services department: Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapy.

Although each therapy concentrates on different areas of rehabilitation, patients will find consistency in the concern and qualifications of the staff, the technique applied in therapy, and the effectiveness of their individual treatment.

The Outpatient Physical Therapy staff at Susque-View will work along with the patient and their physician to develop a rehabilitative plan that produces the best possible results for each individual!

Individuals with speech and language disorders however, are constantly challenged to communicate with the rest of the world. For those individuals, therapy is a delicate and sensitive issue that must be handled in the same respect.
