It’s a vital step in staying healthy and strong, while keeping your quality of life as high as possible.
Our occupational, physical and speech therapists at Barnes-Jewish St. Peters Hospital provide important services to both inpatients and outpatients of all ages. Our expert staff will work closely with your doctor or doctors to determine your best plan for recovery following a surgery or other illness.
