Who We Are
RehabWorks provides an avenue of intervention designed to optimize an individual’s functional independence following surgery, after suffering an injury, or any debilitating condition. Physical, Occupational, and Speech therapy are vital links for people to regain independence in meaningful daily activities that include work, leisure and self-care. Additionally Cardiac Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine programs provide services that most other community hospitals in our region are unable to provide. Our therapists are skilled in treating a variety of orthopedic, neurological, cardiac, and vascular disorders as well as work and sports related injuries. At every step of treatment, patients are provided with education regarding their condition and are encouraged to participate in developing their goals. To schedule an appointment, please call (814) 726-4070. Click here to view profiles on all of the staff at RehabWorks.
Physical therapists (PTs) and physical therapist assistants (PTAs) work with patients to help them achieve their prior level of function. PTs achieve this goal by using state-of-the-art tools to help patients manage pain and therapeutic exercise to help patients improve their motion, strength, gait, balance, endurance, and/or gross motor coordination. PTs also educate their patients to help them better understand their diagnosis and to assist them with maintaining the gains made with therapy through instruction in a home exercise program.
RehabWorks offers physical therapy delivered by experienced therapists some of which are Doctors of Physical Therapy (DPTs). Additionally, therapists at RehabWorks are specially trained in the management of running-related injuries and lymphedema among a number of other diagnoses ranging from sprains and strains to Parkinson’s. Stop into RehabWorks for your evaluation today. A referral from your physician is not even necessary.
Our speech and swallowing therapy program is designed to help adults and children manage disorders of speech, swallowing, memory and cognition, and voice. These problems may arise as a result of delayed development, stroke, head trauma, cancer, or neurological/degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's dementia, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), or Parkinson's disease. Our highly-trained speech-language pathologists focus on function and believe in a restorative therapy approach. Using current and evidence-based treatment techniques, our therapists help our patients achieve functional goals and maintain independence at home, at work, and in the community.
Occupational Therapists (OTR/Ls) and Certified Occupational Therapy Assistants (COTAs) work with patients to achieve independence in work, self-care, and leisure activities. To obtain this goal, our therapists use a combination of knowledge, skills, and state-of-the-art equipment to improve range of motion, strength, endurance, coordination, pain control, and/or sensory processing ability. OTR/Ls and COTAs thoroughly educate patients on their diagnosis and provide a home exercise program that preserves their gains made in therapy.
A Certified Hand Therapist (CHT) works with patients who are recovering from elbow, wrist, hand, and/or finger conditions to re-gain range of motion, strength, endurance, coordination, dexterity, sensation, and the ability to return to work. RehabWorks has the only CHT in Warren County, and he will design a protocol to fit the patient's capabilities and limitations. Using the Baltimore Therapeutic Equipment (BTE), which is a revolutionary machine that can re-create all of the motions that are required while on the job, the patient will be trained to perform his/her job duties before ever returning to work.
RehabWorks is one of the few facilities in the region to provide both phase II and III Cardiac Rehabilitation programs. Phase II is designed for people who are recovering from heart problems such as heart attack, bypass surgery, angioplasty, or stable angina. It is a physician referred, medically supervised and telemetry-monitored program with the goal of returning participants to an active lifestyle by providing education and exercise guidelines. Phase III Cardiac Rehabilitation is for those who do not require the monitoring or supervision Phase II provides, but still need a structured cardiovascular fitness improvement program.
Pediatrics Occupational Therapy
Occupational Therapy focuses on the jobs of childhood such as play, socialization, self–care, and school performance. There can be many frustrations and challenges that go along with achieving these skills when there is a physical, cognitive, sensory, or motor delay. At RehabWorks, we can help children with a wide range of diagnoses such as Autism, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Sensory Processing Disorder, Torticollis, visual processing problems, and other physical, neurological, cognitive, and behavioral difficulties. We work closely with family members, caregivers and other professional members involved with each child to maintain a team approach and foster the greatest level of success. Most importantly, we strive to build meaningful relationships with each child that we see, giving them the tools, the ability, and the confidence to achieve the unimaginable.
How Are We Different?
RehabWorks is the only facility in the area to offer Occupational Therapy, Certified Hand Therapy (CHT), Speech Language Pathology and Cardiac Rehabilitation. All of these rehabilitation programs are tailored to the needs and abilities of each individual, making the programs very unique for each and every patient. These services are a tremendous asset to the Warren community.
Going on NOW at RehabWorks!
Rehabworks at Warren General Hospital number one goal is to help individuals return to the activities they love. Whatever activity that may be, sports like baseball, football, basketball, or other enjoyable activities like fishing, hunting, skiing, golf, bingo or knitting, the department is committed to returning each patient to the activity they enjoy. In December, the Rehabworks department decided to transform the department. The goal of the renovation was to create a true sports rehabilitation clinic in Warren, while still capturing all demographics in the Warren area. The new theme of the department is “Athletes Through the Ages.” This theme accurately represents the new and improved renovations in the Rehabworks department at Warren General Hospital.
When determining the theme, the committee wanted to focus on bringing all generations of the community together. In turn, it was decided to contact all of the Warren County Schools and ask them to be involved in our project. The school district responded immediately to our request. They graciously connected WGH with the art directors at Warren Area High School, Youngsville High School, Sheffield High School, Eisenhower High School, Tidioute Charter School and Warren County Christian School. The art directors asked the students to create a mural to paint on the wall at Rehabworks.
Rehabworks now proudly displays all of the schools mascots in the county. Beginning in the fall, the waiting room will also display Warren Times Observer, student athlete of the week. To bring in more of the sports aspect, fat heads from local professional sports teams line one wall, while another wall hosts blue silhouettes represents more relaxed activities such as fly fishing, bowling, golf, and kayaking. In March, the Warren Area High School Football team assisted with the project by painting all of the walls in Rehabworks with a new coat of paint prior to the murals being painted.
WGH is extremely grateful of how the local school districts rallied around us to help make our project a success. The students put forth a lot of time and dedication to complete the project and did an extraordinary job. The murals reflect each schools mascot, colors, school spirit, and individuality. Everyone should be very proud of the rural community we live in. WGH welcomes parents, grandparents, friends and anyone else who wants to see the murals to stop in to RehabWorks, Monday through Friday, 730am to 4pm to take a look at the new and improved Rehabworks sports clinic that proudly serves all “Athletes Through the Ages.”

"As a mother of a junior on the Dragon Football Team, I am deeply grateful that Warren General Hospital/Rehab Works/Warren Medical Group has offered to do sports physicals here. What a wonderful service we are offering and I have heard a lot of positive feedback from other parents as well. I just wanted to let you know how much this service is appreciated. Thank you." - from Leah Danielson
Mary, OTA at Rehabworks has a fantastic sensory integration program that has made a significant difference in my son’s sensory related behaviors due to Autism and ADHD. I think that the sensory integration program at RehabWorks should be part of every Early Childhood Intervention Program in our area. I am forever grateful for the services Mary provided for my son and family. – Emily Eggleston
The positive atmosphere at Rehabworks gets me out and on the move on days I might not otherwise be active. After participating for a while, one wants to get there on the appointed days. Having the professional staff and hospital facilities available are an advantage over other locations, and the staff can completely advise you on the entire range of cardiac rehab subjects. – James C.
