Treatment Team

Each patient is evaluated by a treatment team operating under the leadership of a physiatrist. Together with the family, professionals in the fields of rehabilitation nursing, speech-language pathology, dietitian, psychology, vocational counseling, case management, as well as physical and occupational therapies work with the patient to achieve the best outcome possible.  

One of the most important members of the treatment team is the family. The family is provided with training, professional support, education, and counseling. They are encouraged to work with the patient's treatment team to provide information about the patient's personality, lifestyle, and hopes.


The goals of the program are specific to each patient and injury, but overall are aimed at restoring, enhancing, and supporting the patient's maximum level of independence. Through Inpatient, SubAcute, Outpatient, and Vocational Rehabilitation Programs, Siskin Hospital offers comprehensive rehabilitation at every level of treatment, from initial therapy to returning the patient to the community, school, or work.

Often, truama patients benefit from Siskin Hospital's wide variety of programs and services, such as the Brain Injury Treatment Program, Spinal Cord Injury Program, Amputee Program, Orthopedic Services, and Wound Care Treatment.
