World Class Care for Everyone

Aspen has long been a world-class destination for a diverse array of active lifestyles — from adventure seekers to ultra runners and multi-generational families exploring together. Aspen Valley Hospital’s rehabilitation services are tailored to meet the needs of patients who are eager to get back on the trail and into the mountains as soon as possible, in a way that maximizes personal enjoyment and rehabilitation objectives. 

Our Philosophy

We believe in completely individualizing treatment — provided solely by licensed physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech therapists — ensuring your rehabilitation protocol is ideally suited to your physical and lifestyle needs. Additionally, we aim to maximize continuity of care by pairing patients with the same therapist throughout their recovery journey, implementing a progressive, goal-oriented approach to return you to your normal activities as soon as possible. We believe rehabilitation requires excellent rapport between patient, physician and therapist, which is why we work closely with you and your physician to develop a customized program that delivers long-term results.
