What is Acute Care Therapy?
Acute care therapy is rehabilitation therapy that occurs within a general hospital setting. Our partnership with Baylor Scott & White Health allows us to treat patients who have been admitted to the hospital, including those who are critically ill. We provide physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and recreational therapy within Baylor Scott & White Medical Centers across North Texas.
