April is National Occupational Therapy Month

OTsHere at PAH we have a combined total of over 50 years of experience with our OT staff led by Arley Johnson, MS, OTR/L, Site Supervisor at PAH for Good Shepherd Penn Partners. Marion Conneen, OTR/L, has been with PAH for over thirty years as a critical member of the OT team on 4 Spruce. 

The OT staff works in inpatient acute care and inpatient psychiatry settings. They have recently expanded their talents to treating our most precious patients - babies in the Intensive Care Nursery. 

Thank you OT's for all the hard work that you do meeting our patients’ therapy needs so they can safely return to their activities of daily living!
