The best place to recover from an illness, injury or procedure is in the comfort of your own home. It is where you feel safest, the surroundings are familiar and where you spend the most time with family and friends.
For over 25 years, Southwoods Health’s focus has been on the needs of the communities it serves. We’ve continued to expand clinical offerings to ensure patients have access to the important care they need, while providing an exceptional patient experience. Southwoods Health is proud to offer a new service with that same focus in Southwoods Health at Home.
Our goal is to provide you with expert care, the Southwoods Way, offering compassionate support, encouragement and genuine peace of mind for you and your family.
Services are available to anyone who needs it, can be requested by patients, family members or a physician, and you do not have to be in the hospital to make the request. Patients at home or those being cared for in an outpatient setting, such as an emergency room or doctor’s office, may also be eligible. Although anyone can make the request, services must be ordered by a physician.
Our physical and occupational therapists work to help increase strength and mobility, reduce pain, regain function and restore or improve the ability to perform everyday tasks. Our speech therapists are responsible for the assessment and treatment of speech, language, swallowing, cognitive and voice disorders.
Therapy may be ordered after joint replacement procedures, neurological conditions, orthopaedic injuries, nerve-related conditions or to improve a patient’s balance, flexibility and strength.
Southwoods Health at Home has received accreditation from the Joint Commission, an organization whose recognition shows Southwoods’ dedication to patient care meets or exceeds national standards for safety and quality.
