Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Network Now Offers Virtual Visits

Compassionate Care, Delivered Virtually

For more than 110 years, Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Network has been here for you. Now, we can be there for you.

To stay connected with adult and pediatric patients and help prevent the spread of COVID-19, Good Shepherd is offering virtual visits with our physicians, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists and clinical psychologists — all from the comfort of your home.

Patients can communicate in real time through a smartphone, laptop, desktop or tablet.

“Virtual visits, including telehealth video visits, offer us a way to care for patients who are living with disability, recovering from a stroke, rehabbing an orthopedic injury or experiencing pain,” says Frank Hyland, MS, PT, executive director of Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Network. “We can evaluate and treat them while they stay home and stay safe.”

Request a virtual visit by calling 1-888-44-REHAB, filling out an appointment request form or using live chat on GoodShepherdRehab.org.

Virtual visits are covered by Medicare and most major insurances.

Note: The Coronavirus Preparedness and Response Supplemental Appropriations Act, signed into law on March 6, 2020, includes waivers that temporarily relax regulations on digital communications between providers and patients.
