PHYSICAL THERAPY, OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY, SPEECH THERAPY

 
Aspen Valley Hospital is proud to offer state-of-the-art rehabilitation services, including physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy.  We treat a wide range of impairments, functional limitations, and disabilities.  All three disciplines are provided at our hospital location.  In addition, physical therapy services are provided in Aspen at our Downtown Clinic.  In Snowmass Village we have physical therapists at the Snowmass Club year round, and at the Snowmass Urgent Care Center during the winter season.  In Basalt, we offer physical (occupational) therapy at After-Hours Medical Care.

Our Philosophy
  • Individualized treatment is provided by licensed physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech therapists; no aides or assistants are used.
  • Continuity of care is maximized by consistent treatment from the same therapist whenever possible.
  • Rehabilitation is progressive and goal oriented to efficiently and effectively return patients to their normal activities as soon as possible.
  • Staff knowledge and skills are continually updated through ongoing education.
  • An excellent rapport with our patients' physicians is an integral part of quality care.
  • All therapy billing is accomplished through AVH, even if the service is provided at one of our off-campus locations.  AVH is a Medicare/Medicaid provider and preferred provider for most area healthcare plans.

OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY
In its simplest terms, occupational therapists help people of all ages participate in daily functional activities, a.k.a. occupations. Occupational therapy helps people function in their environment and addresses the physical, psychological, and cognitive aspects of their well-being through engagement in activities.
Common occupational therapy interventions include helping children with disabilities to participate fully in school and develop social skills, helping people recovering from injury to regain function through retraining and/or adaptations, and providing support for older adults experiencing physical and cognitive changes. Our occupational therapy team provides care to patients within the hospital to prepare them for a safe return home and provides specialty treatment for patients with neurologic and orthopedic conditions.  Team members have advanced training and experience in acute and long-term management of patients with concussion/brain injury with a progressive program. Our Occupational Therapists are also experienced in custom splint fabrication and hand /upper extremity injuries with a Certified Hand Therapist on staff.
