Physical Therapy & Occupational Therapy in Upper Sandusky

We’re committed to Improving Quality of Life

The physical therapy and occupational therapy programs at Wyandot Memorial Hospital are run by a team of professionals who build customized programs to fit the needs of each and every patient. We have three different programs for both therapies – inpatient, outpatient, and at-home services. Through strategic planning and dedicated effort, we help our patients regain their independence and enjoy a higher quality of life. We also provide one-on-one care for our patients, and this approach enables us to offer the quality care that every patient at our facility deserves.

Therapy Gym

Both physical therapy and occupational therapy have an incorporated Swing Bed Program (SWP). SWP is for patients who no longer need intensive acute therapy in the hospital but are not quite ready for home. This is an in-between stage between inpatient and outpatient that provides an opportunity for patients to continue recovering and training for a safe return home.

Physical Therapy

Aquatic TherapyThe goal of physical therapy is to help patients regain independence and mobility after an injury or illness renders them incapacitated. Physical therapy is more general than occupational therapy; in this program, we want to help patients improve all aspects of their lives, not just one particular area or skill. Physical therapists have many avenues in which they can achieve this.
