Outpatient Therapy

At Bethel Health Care Outpatient Rehabilitation, our therapists are trained in many types of sought-after treatment techniques. Our patients travel from around Fairfield and Litchfield Counties, and some come from up to 80 miles away to see our expert therapists. The referring physician is a key part of our team, and will be in communication with your therapist regarding your plan of care. All appointments are one-on-one with a physical, occupational, or speech therapist. We do not double book patients and we strongly value keeping you with the same therapist throughout the duration of your care.
