Celebrating Physical Therapy: Restoring Lives and Hope

October 6, 2023

October is a special month for all of us at Catholic Health Services as it marks National Physical Therapy Month. It’s a time when we recognize and celebrate the incredible contributions of our dedicated physical therapists and their positive impact on our patients’ lives. With a mission to provide the highest quality care, Catholic Health Services proudly operates two inpatient rehabilitation hospitals in Miami-Dade and Broward counties.

Physical therapy plays a crucial role in the recovery and well-being of individuals with various health challenges. Whether it’s helping a stroke survivor regain strength, assisting an athlete in their journey back to the playing field, or supporting an elderly patient in maintaining their independence, physical therapists are healthcare professionals who empower individuals to live their lives to the fullest.
