THERAPIES
Grove City Medical Center’s physical therapy department provides a wide range of rehabilitative therapies to those patients who are staying at the hospital, as well as outpatients who visit by appointment. The department is staffed by licensed physical therapists, many of whom hold doctorate degrees, licensed certified occupational therapists and licensed speech language pathologists. Support staff includes licensed physical therapist assistants and physical therapy technicians.

“We are committed to establishing and maintaining the most effective level of communication among therapists to monitor your care as you progress through the levels of care: inpatient, transitional care, home health and outpatient.”
