Wesley provides a wide range of inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation services to patients of all ages, with the goal of enabling them to achieve their highest possible level of functioning and independence. We have a convenient centrally located clinic for our outpatient therapy services, allowing you to get back to optimal health quickly.
Our rehabilitation staff uses a multidisciplinary approach to design personalized treatment programs. Wesley Medical Center employs a variety of experienced specialists including physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech language pathologists and audiologists. Team members maintain close communication with each other and with your physician, family members, and any outside agencies involved in your personalized rehabilitation program. The team helps provide continuity of care, beginning with the earliest possible intervention and continuing through the transition to home or another facility.
In addition to our total joint placement recovery program, our rehabilitation services include:
Acute Rehabilitation Team
The Acute Rehabilitation Team works primarily with patients admitted by the trauma service who have experienced a traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, multisystem trauma, stroke or other neurological disease. The overall goal of the team is to enable patients to function at their highest possible level by providing early intervention to begin rehabilitation as soon as possible. Team members work to communicate with and educate the patient and family on the recovery process and how they play a role.
Wesley’s Audiology Department is responsible for screening the hearing of over 6,000 newborns each year. When necessary, diagnostic testing can be performed with the newborn is still in the hospital or as an outpatient after discharge. Diagnostic testing can identify hearing loss in an infant as early as two weeks of age. Our outpatient clinic tests all ages, from two-week-old infants to elderly adults. Our audiologists provide diagnosis of hearing, loss, middle ear dysfunction or normal auditory function with recommendations for follow up as needed.
WesleyCare Child Therapy Team
The WesleyCare Child Therapy Team includes audiologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists and speech pathologist who help children with special needs reach their full potential. Each child is evaluated and an individual treatment program is designed to meet the child’s specific needs.
Occupational or physical therapists provide hand therapy rehabilitation for patients that suffer from conditions such as burns, arthritis, sports injuries or fractures that affect the hands and upper extremities.
Wesley’s occupational therapy department has a wide scope of services that can be provided to both inpatients and outpatients. Occupational therapists work to enable patients to reach their highest level of independence with daily tasks through strengthening and coordination exercises, patient and family education, home modification recommendations and adaptive environment.

Physical therapy focuses on treating a range of motion, strength, pain, balance and mobility deficits with a focus on gait and balance in order to achieve the highest level of safety and independence.
