Pediatric Therapy & Rehabilitation Services

Our experienced, skilled team of Pediatric Therapy and Rehabilitation therapists take a child and family focused approach to treatment. We work with infants and children of all ages, crafting therapy and treatment plans based on each unique individual, while taking the child and family’s specific needs and situation into account.

Pediatric Rehabilitation

York Hospital’s pediatric occupational, physical, and speech-language therapists have specialized skills. We design collaborative programs to meet each child’s mutually determined outcomes. Our team provides comprehensive evaluations and ongoing innovative therapy to enhance and restore function, mobility, and participation in all environments.
