Our standards of care have been established using evidence and guidelines from the American Physical Therapy Association, American Occupational Therapy Association and the American Speech and Hearing Association.

Our therapy team includes: Occupational Therapists (OTR); Occupational Therapist Assistant (COTA); Physical Therapists (PT); Physical Therapist Assistants: and Speech Language Pathologists. All of our therapists are licensed by their respective therapy board. Houston Methodist SNF therapists have specialized training to work with patients who can benefit from a moderately intense therapy regimen to relearn and retrain in mobility, self care, endurance,
and perhaps swallowing or speaking.
