Occupational therapy (OT) promotes wellness and independence in all areas of self-care, work and leisure. Patient education and goal setting is an important part of all treatment.
Outpatient services include orthopedic, neurological and vocational rehabilitation. Outpatient occupational therapy services take place in the Northwest Pavilion on Valley Medical Center's campus.
Therapists help patients and their families with safe and independent discharge plans and offer training, education and home programs. Occupational therapists also evaluate and treat patients who have acute psychosocial issues.
