Dan Wyand Physical Therapy & Associates is affiliated with Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital (NVRH) and provides inpatient rehabilitation services to people in the hospital setting receiving care on the Medical Surgical Unit and in the Intensive Care Unit. The rehabilitation team works closely with doctors, nurses, case managers, respiratory therapists and pastoral care services to provide you the highest quality care with a team approach on your road to recovery.

In the hospital setting, we treat people with medical conditions, as well as people who are recovering from orthopedic surgery such as a total hip replacement or total knee replacement. We work closely with area orthopedic surgeons, as well as with the Dartmouth Hitchcock Hospital medical team who send patients to our hospital for our rehabilitation SWING program.

In our SWING program, patients receive intensive physical therapy and occupational therapy treatment for 1-2 weeks after their acute stay in order to meet their functional goals for returning home.

After receiving therapy in the hospital, it is a great advantage to easily transition into our outpatient clinics across the street on Sherman Drive in St. Johnsbury and to Industrial Drive in Lyndonville with the same team of therapists. We work closely together with you, to provide a seamless transition of care from hospital to clinic setting.
