Patient Admission and Discharge Information:

Admissions:

CWJR provides PT, OT, and SLP to all ages from birth to end of life. Due to the open environment of our clinic, we are unable to take patients who are unsafe or are who are likely to become a safety risk to other patients, families or staff. Risk assessment is conducted at the time of the patient’s intake with oversite done by lead therapists and executive team. Additionally, we take any etiology of spinal cord dysfunction that can improve/benefit with PT, OT or SLP intervention. We also take all levels of patients with incomplete spinal cord levels and patients with complete spinal cord injuries below level C4. In addition, we take patients with spinal cord injuries whose comorbidities are cleared by a physician for outpatient PT, OT or SLP.
