Rehabilitation Medicine is open and continues with Telehealth visits
Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC) Rehabilitation Medicine is open for physical, occupational and speech therapy appointments for current and new patients. With thorough disinfecting strategies and changes to our physical layout, we are meeting social distancing guidelines and constantly putting safety first. We also are continuing telerehab services. If you are interested in setting up an in-person visit or a virtual visit, please call 603-650-3600.
Whether you are in the hospital or coming to our clinic for your appointment, rehabilitation medicine includes several areas to support your health:
- Occupational therapy can help you get back to tasks involved in your daily life using activities and task simulation to improve function.
- Physical therapy helps restore function, relieve pain and improve movement and function after an injury or surgery so that you can return to the activities you love.
- Speech and language pathology helps you when you have disorders or illnesses that affect your speech, your ability to understand or produce language, your voice and your swallowing.
We partner with providers from Dartmouth-Hitchcock as well as experts throughout New Hampshire and Vermont. This allows us to draw on the skills of certified therapists in all areas while having the largest number of rehabilitation specialists in one location. Our services are conveniently available in Lebanon and Keene.
