Loyola to Offer Pediatric Rehab Services in Oakbrook Terrace

Services to move from Maywood to Oakbrook Terrace next month

MAYWOOD, Ill. – Loyola University Health System (LUHS) will move its pediatric rehabilitation services from the medical center campus in Maywood to the first floor of the Center for Health at Oakbrook Terrace, located at 1S224 Summit Ave. The new center will be open to patients on Monday, June 3.

Patients will continue to see the same therapists and will have access to the same equipment at the Oakbrook Terrace location. The added benefit is that this facility is a 15-minute drive from the LUMC campus and parking is free.

Pediatric Rehabilitation Services facilities also are located at the Loyola Center for Health at Hickory Hills and the Loyola Center for Health at Homer Glen. Occupational therapy, physical therapy, and speech and language therapy are offered at all three locations.

For questions, call Maribeth Walsh, MS, CCC-SP/L, practice director of Outpatient Orthopaedics & Rehabilitation Services, at (630) 953-6791.
