Therapy Service is available to clients who are discharged to their homes upon successful completion of an individualized, in-house Therapy Program after a brief therapy stay. Once those Clients return home, the “potential” for falls occurs within 24 to 72 hours. This may cause the clients, once again, to be hospitalized and a possible re-admission to our Therapy Program.
In 2007, Outpatient Therapy Services became a reality offering clients a continuum of care. Crestview is dedicated to those clients that just returned home and still need that extra care once they are living at home.
Crestview Outpatient Services available:
- Aquatic Therapy
- Occupational Therapy
- Physical Therapy
- Speech Therapy
Same place, same faces, however, the clients return home to regain independence. In many cases, our outpatient services can be provided by Medicare Part B. Transportation is available to and from Outpatient Therapy appointments. Appointments can be made between the hours of 8:30 A.M. to 4:00 P.M.
- Physician referral is required.
- Medicare B insurance accepted.
- For Medicare B insurance billing questions please call Barb Hamilton, Billing Coordinator at 740-653-9340.
