Christmas magic for SRHS Pediatric Rehabilitation patients

Published on Wednesday, December 4, 2013

Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System’s (SRHS) Pediatric Rehabilitation Department will spread season’s cheer to its patients and their parents during its 13th annual holiday party. The party is Saturday (Dec.7), 9 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. and will be held in the lobby of the SRHS Outpatient Center.

Each week, the department serves more than 300 pediatric patients. From occupational and physical therapists to speech-language pathologists, pediatric rehabilitation at SRHS is provided by a team who specializes in evaluation and treatment of children with disabilities from birth to 21 years of age.

The party brings together parents and children from across the county who receive ongoing pediatric rehabilitation services. It is sponsored by the Judy Bradshaw Children’s Foundation and other community and business contributors,

For parents, it is an opportunity to meet other parents with similar experiences. For children, it is an opportunity to enjoy the magic of Christmas. Children enjoy refreshments, Christmas music, face painting, balloon twisting, juggling, a magic show and photos with Santa.

But the most amazing part of the party is that each child receives a special gift, selected especially for him or her by the child’s therapist to help with their rehabilitation goals.

“Whatever problem each child faces, the team at Regional Pediatric Rehabilitation selects a toy that not only is fun to play with, but can help reinforce his or her treatment goals,” said Sharon Caston, SLP, manager of Spartanburg Regional Pediatric Rehabilitation. “Everyone works together to make it a memorable day for the children.”
