Rehabilitation

Internationally recognized as a leader in pediatric rehabilitation, St. Mary’s multi-disciplinary team of therapists, medical, and nursing professionals, deliver optimal rehabilitative care for infants, children, and adolescents facing the consequences of trauma, illness, and congenital diseases.

An individualized course of treatment is designed to help each child regain independence and achieve his or her full potential. Rehabilitation may include physical, occupational, and speech therapy, along with less traditional therapies such as animal-assisted therapy, complementary care, healing arts and therapeutic recreation, augmentative communication/assistive technology, and palliative care, among others.

Wii are the champions!

wii enforcementSt. Mary’s introduced an innovative therapeutic tool to encourage kids to get up and get moving – the Nintendo Wii. Unlike most video games, the Wii forces players to use their whole body to play virtual games like baseball, tennis, and golf. The Nintendo Wii is not only fun, it allows children the opportunity to just be kids while challenging them physically. At the hospital, the Wii is used as a reward for therapy or as a supplement to a child’s therapy.

Rehabilitation therapies may be provided at the Hospital, at home, or in a community setting. Most often a child is referred by an acute care hospital’s discharge planner or their pediatrician.
