Speech-Language Pathology


Speech-Language Pathology Services

Samaritan’s Speech-Language Pathology services provide care for patients in the hospital, as well as in the clinic on an outpatient basis. They currently provide care for those 18 and older, however, there are circumstances when a younger patient may be seen for medically necessary therapy.

Patients are often surprised that a speech pathologist can assist them with treatments that they may not have known about before their appointments began. They are excited to be able to communicate and function in ways they thought had been lost to them forever.
