Baptist Health Hardin’s Pediatric Therapy services provides physical, occupational and speech therapy to more than 2,000 children ages birth to 18 years, across the region. These services have always been in high demand and the program consistently has a waiting list.
The Foundation has worked with Baptist Health Hardin Therapy Centers in Bardstown, Elizabethtown, and Radcliff to equip the facilities with fun and engaging resources to support patient therapy.
“The ropes, stairs, doors and ‘toys’ all have an intended purpose to help our young patients improve,” said Dan Martin, Baptist Health Hardin’s Assistant Vice President, Oncology Services & Rehabilitation Services.
The Foundation, with the support of its grantors, funded a one-of-a-kind indoor therapeutic playground for Central Kentucky children in need of advanced therapy services. The 1,500 square-foot playground, located in the Baptist Health Hardin Therapy and Sports Medicine Center on Ring Road, features equipment designed to support physical, occupational and speech therapy.
