The way you should be treated.™

Do you or someone you know need Speech Language Therapy?
If you’re an adult having trouble with swallowing, speaking, listening, reading, writing, and/or thinking, you may benefit from working with one of our speech language pathologists (SLPs) here at Silver Cross Hospital. We offer speech language assessment and treatment on our acute medical floors, inpatient rehabilitation unit and outpatient clinic. We work with our patients and educate families about their unique concerns and how speech therapy may improve their overall abilities.
