Therapy Services

Treatment and rehabilitative therapies at Good Shepherd include intravenous, occupational, physical, respiratory, speech and language, and more.

IV Therapy

Intravenous (IV) Therapy includes infusion and injection procedures that cannot be performed in a physician’s office and might otherwise require an inpatient stay. Compared with other routes of administration, the intravenous route is the fastest way to deliver fluids and medications throughout the body. It is often used for emergency application of antibiotics for severe infections, and is also used to supply vital fluids in the case of advanced dehydration. Typical IV Therapy procedures include:

  • Antibiotic Infusion and Injection
  • Blood and Blood Product Transfusions
  • Remicade Infusions
  • PICC Line Placement and Central Line Care
  • IVIG Infusions
  • Iron Infusions
  • Solumedrol Infusions
  • Hydration
  • IV Initiation
  • Bone Marrow Biopsy
  • Laboratory Sample Draws via Central Lines
  • Phlebotomies
  • Dressing Changes

Physical Therapy

The Physical Therapy department at Good Shepherd is open 8am to 5pm Monday through Thursday, 8am to 3pm on Fridays, and offers a large variety of therapies to the 80 to 100 community members we treat each day.

A wide array of state-of-the-art workout tools and other physical therapy equipment is available to address virtually every part of the body. The department’s crown jewel is a $75,000 hydrotherapy pool.

Respiratory Therapy

Licensed respiratory therapists are on staff around the clock at Good Shepherd Medical Center. They perform a variety of duties such as arterial blood sampling, electrocardiography (EKG), cardiac stress testing, and electroencephalography (EEF). We are part of the team that does c-sections and responds to all respiratory and cardiac emergencies.

Speech and Language Therapy

A Licensed Speech/Language Pathologist, who also holds Clinical Competency Certification from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, provides evaluation and treatment in communication areas related to speech, language, oral sensory/motor function, word recall, cognition, voice, and hearing loss.

The Department also provides evaluation and treatment of swallowing disorders, including safe swallow techniques, safe texture management, and teaching of compensatory skills. Infants and children can receive speech therapy services for delayed speech and language development or swallowing difficulties, and as a supplement to services received in the school district. Adults can repair neurological damage from a head injury or stroke, improving their ability to express ideas and needs. Evaluation appointments can be made on a referral from a physician.
