Our Services

The Columbus Specialty Hospital clinical programs are served by an interdisciplinary team of highly trained staff and physicians. The team continuously monitors goals, tracks clinical outcomes and remains current on the best clinical practices to incorporate into each program. The interdisciplinary team meets weekly to re-evaluate care and set new goals intended to challenge each patient for a higher level of recovery. Families and patients are an integral part of the team and are encouraged to remain actively involved in the patient’s treatment plan. Our goal is to return each patient to his or her optimal level of functioning and health.
