WARWICK, N.Y. (Nov 18, 2016)— Access Physical Therapy & Wellness is pleased to announce the hiring of Lynn McCafferty-Algiere, M.S., CCC-SLP, and the expansion of its speech therapy services with St. Anthony Community Hospital Center for Physical Rehabilitation in Warwick. St. Anthony Community Hospital is a part of Bon Secours Charity Health System, a Member of the Westchester Medical Center Health Network.
McCafferty-Algiere has been a speech-language pathologist for more than 20 years with experience working in hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, and outpatient rehabilitation settings.
“It has truly been my pleasure to provide speech therapy services to Orange County’s pediatric through geriatric population,” said McCafferty-Algiere. “I’m excited for the opportunity that Access Physical Therapy & Wellness has provided me to help more people through their partnership with St. Anthony Community Hospital.”
Speech therapy is a practice provided by a licensed speech-language pathologist who identifies, assesses and treats speech, language and swallowing disorders. It’s effective in treating articulation, phonological processing disorders, apraxia of speech, stuttering/dysfluency, aphasia, dysphagia (swallowing difficulties) and cognitive impairments.
The focus of speech therapy is to promote typical development of speech and language, regain lost speech and language skills, and to use compensatory strategies or alternative methods to help an individual communicate effectively with others.
Access Physical Therapy & Wellness provides speech therapy services through the Bon Secours Charity Health System at St. Anthony Community Hospital Center for Physical Rehabilitation on Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
