Rehab Center Features

Because children are constantly growing intellectually, physically and emotionally, each child's rehabilitation plan is created for his specific developmental needs. The Rehabilitation Center features child-size equipment and exercises that incorporate play and games specifically designed for children. Our gyms, sensory and private treatment rooms, therapy pool, therapeutic playground and walking track are all built for children's specific rehabilitation needs.

Pediatric Physical Medicine and Therapy Services

Our highly-trained Children's Hospital staff of physical and occupational therapists, speech therapists, social workers, nutritionists, psychologists and physiatrists work together to motivate each child, involve families and set attainable goals. In order to increase each child's confidence and independence, the staff teaches families how to incorporate rehabilitation exercises into life at home.

Sleep Medicine Center

The Rehabilitation Center is also home to the Children's West Sleep Medicine Center, where children can complete a sleep study to diagnose sleep disorders, sleep apnea, narcolepsy and other conditions. The process is painless and includes an overnight stay at the Sleep Medicine Center. While sleep disorders can seem bothersome to parents, they are often an underlying reason for a serious health issue and can affect a wide spectrum of a child's life. Sleep studies can be scheduled by a primary care physician or pediatrician.
