The organization, size, and philosophy of the Rehabilitation Hospital of the Cape and Islands (RHCI) in Sandwich, MA supports a highly collaborative supervisory model for speech-language pathologists as well as for the other therapeutic disciplines, namely occupational and physical therapy and nursing.
A 60-bed, acute rehabilitation hospital serving rural Cape Cod and Southeastern Massachusetts, RHCI follows a programmatic, rather than departmental, organizational model. RHCF’s inpatient speech-language pathologists work primarily in the hospital’s Neurocognitive Program, caring for survivors of stroke, brain injury, trauma and patients with chronic neurologic conditions such as Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis. They also treat patients with complex medical conditions who have swallowing and cognitive linguistic difficulties. Outpatient clinicians serve the same population as that of the inpatient speech-language pathologists as well as children with a wide range of diagnoses, including developmental delays, cerebral palsy, learning disabilities, PDD and autism.
