The COVID-19 pandemic has affected us all in many ways over the past year. While much of the focus has been on acute diagnosis and treatment, it has become more apparent that many survivors—especially those who required prolonged hospital stays—have lasting weaknesses affecting their daily lives. If you or a loved one have been affected by COVID-19 and continue to experience some of these symptoms, rehabilitation can help.
Our COVID-19 Rehabilitation Team includes speech, physical and occupational therapists. Working together and with your doctor, our goal is to improve quality of life for patients who continue to experience repercussions from this virus.
