Insurance

Putnam Hospital Center participates in most managed care plans. Private health insurance and Medicare are also accepted.

We will verify insurance coverage prior to starting your therapy and will work with your insurer to guarantee the greatest degree of coverage. However, it is ultimately your responsibility to be aware of your coverage. Contact your carrier if you have any questions or concerns.

Hand Therapy

Certified hand therapists are an integral part of the Putnam Hospital Center rehabilitation team. Hand therapists work with patients who have a wide range of conditions, including fractures, tendonitis, amputations, arthritis, repetitive stress and nerve injuries, and focus on treatments that aim to both rehabilitate the injury and prevent future ones. For more information, see Orthopedic Rehabilitation.

Specialized Rehabilitation Programs

Putnam Hospital Center offers a variety of specialized rehabilitation programs for various conditions:

  • Vestibular disorders. We provide therapy for anyone who experiences dizziness, has had a concussion or has problems with balance.
  • Cancer. Therapy can be provided for scar management and risk reduction, and customized exercise programs can be developed.
  • Cardiac disease. Most people who have had heart surgery or have experienced a major heart event can benefit from cardiac therapy.
  • Lymphedema. Therapy is available for those experiencing swelling following the removal of lymph glands or as the result of other conditions.
  • Neurological disorders. Those recovering from stroke or other neurological conditions may benefit from therapy.
  • Orthopedic disorders. Services are offered for those who have experienced an injury or amputation, or who are recovering from surgery, including joint replacement.
  • Pulmonary disease. Therapy can benefit those struggling with chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD), asthma, emphysema, chronic bronchitis or pulmonary fibrosis. Specialized services also are offered for patients who have had a lung transplant.
