Coordiation across specialties

The speech-language pathologists collaborate with experts across the Northwell Health. Within the Rehabilitation Network, they work closely with physiatrists (rehab physicians), physical therapists and occupational therapists as necessary to benefit each patient’s individual condition and treatment plan.

They also work with professionals outside of rehabilitation, depending on the individual patient’s condition and their rehabilitation setting (inpatient or outpatient). This can include collaboration with experts within neuroscience, cancer, otolaryngology (ear, nose and throat) and pediatrics to help facilitate recovery for patients.
