Department of the Month
Alliance Community Hospital's Department of the Month for November is Therapy Services.
Therapy Services is comprised of 35 Colleagues with a collective 248 years of hands-on experience and offers a full gamut of care that includes speech, occupational and physical therapy programs in the outpatient, inpatient and skilled therapy area of the CCC.
Eric Murray, Director of the Therapy Services team, explained why his department is so unique.
“We are able to offer total continuity of care broaching the entire spectrum from inpatient to CCC and finally to the outpatient clinic and recovery. Because we offer all therapy disciplines (OT, ST/PT), we can integrate complex programs and are able to address many facets of patient care,” he said.
The Therapy Services department provides a strong pediatric program through the outpatient department and also offers distinctive specialty services that include: an orthopedic sports rehabilitation program, Vital Stim therapy (to help patients with swallowing disorders) and Saeboflex therapy (to strengthen hand coordination).
Murray said the Therapy Services team is proud to provide comprehensive services that are enhanced by compassionate therapists dedicated to improving quality of life for their patients.
“Our team fully recognizes that we have it within our power to create a positive impact on our patients and their ability to return to functionality. This involves much more than just physical rehabilitation techniques; we are also aware of the importance of strengthening our patients emotionally – at the core,” he said.
Murray explained how proud he is to be associated with the staff of professionals in Therapy Services.
“If you give us the opportunity, we believe you will find our team of therapists is incredibly compassionate and competent. We provide the kind of exceptional, individualized care that maximizes recovery,” Murray said.
Congratulations to the Therapy Services department on this great achievement. We appreciate your hard work and dedication.
Colleagues such as you make Alliance Community Hospital a fabulous place to work.
