Westview's Outpatient Therapy program features highly-trained and knowledgeable therapy professionals and staff who take pride in providing patients with a full spectrum of Physical, Occupational and Speech rehabilitation services.

We are committed to helping patients of all ages attain independence and an improved quality of life - from the athlete recovering from a sports injury, to the person with a chronic condition, or the patient on the mend after knee replacement surgery.

Westview has enhanced its health care services with the addition of a state-of-the-art, high tech 2500 square foot outpatient therapy gymnasium which includes a HydroWorx 500 Professional Series Therapy Pool.

One of the crown jewels of Westview's outpatient therapy program is the integration of a 7'6" wide by 14' long aquatic therapy pool. This state-of-the-art technology is the first of its kind within a 50-mile radius and provides Westview with yet another way to meet the needs of our active and aging populations.

Westview's Outpatient Aquatic Therapy Program is a multifaceted program offered to patients as an addition to land-based physical or occupational therapy treatment, sports medicine regimen or as a primary treatment intervention. This aquatic intervention is also widely utilized for pre-surgical strengthening in order to condition the patient prior to upcoming elective surgical procedures.
