Physical therapy for small hospitals — how contract services can help

contract therapy small hospitals

More than any other type of facility, small hospitals face numerous obstacles to delivering high quality physical therapy services. With smaller management teams, smaller staff and less resources, it can be a struggle to maintain proper staffing levels, manage performance, accurately document services and stay on top of advances in the industry. This is especially true of critical access facilities that are subsidized to serve rural and remote areas. 

However, patients who come to small hospitals for care are just as deserving of physical therapy and rehabilitation services as those who go to larger facilities. What’s more, a successful physical therapy program can be a contributor to patient satisfaction and revenue for your facility. One solution that a high number of small hospitals turn to is using contract therapy services from a dedicated physical therapy organization.
