Hillside Rehabilitation Hospital

Jeff Kelly meets with Jeff Koontz, DPT in this week's Health Chat

Hillside Rehabilitation Hospital and Austintown Rehabilitation Services, A Service of Hillside Rehabilitation Hospital, offers a multitude of convenient and accessible outpatient therapy services, with helping each patient achieve his or her optimal level being the primary focus.

Our Therapy Services include:

  • Adult and Pediatric Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapy
  • Ergonomic Evaluations
  • Functional Capacity Evaluations
  • Industrial Rehabilitation
  • Lymphedema Treatment
  • Pre-employment Testing
  • Sports Medicine
  • Work Simulation and Conditioning
  • Driving Evaluations
  • Cognition
  • Swallowing Dysfunction

Our therapists work one-on-one with each patient to develop individualized treatment plans to help achieve their goals. It is vital for a successful recovery that patients follow their prescribed therapy regimen in its entirety. The therapy plan focuses on building up function and mobility and each day that a patient decreases physical activity results in loss of muscular strength.

Hillside’s number one priority is always patient safety. As part of its “Safe & Ready” program Hillside is taking additional precautions to ensure patients can receive high-quality, compassionate care in a safe, carefully managed environment—without fear of infection. Strict standards have been put in place, including:

  • Screening all patients by phone using the CDC COVID-19 questionnaire before their appointment to ensure it is safe for them to enter the building.
  • All therapy is done one-on-one with proper social distancing procedures.
  • Masks must always be worn by therapists and adult patients (pediatrics depending on child age and tolerance).
  • No visitors except for one adult for pediatrics.
  • Equipment is thoroughly cleaned before and after a patient uses it. We also have an increased frequency of overall stringent facility cleaning.

Hillside Rehabilitation Hospital and Austintown Rehabilitation Services remain Safe & Ready to care for you and your family. For more information on outpatient therapy services, visit hillsiderehabhospital.org.
