Creighton Pediatric Therapy


Creighton Pediatric Therapy

At  Creighton Pediatric Therapy, our team of occupational therapists, physical therapists and speech therapists is dedicated to providing unparalleled patient care in the Jesuit tradition of community, service and care for the whole person.

We work together with families in an inviting and friendly clinical setting to develop individualized treatment plans that go beyond quality care. We strive to build personal relationships with everyone we serve.

 Creighton Pediatric Therapy

We are proud to serve as a premier community partner with the Pediatric Occupational Therapy Fellowship and Pediatric Physical Therapy Residency Programs at Creighton University. Through these programs, we strengthen clinical expertise in pediatric therapy and improve the therapy experience for children and their families.

In addition to individual therapy sessions, we offer coordinated sessions with multiple services, including small-group camps and programming and informational sessions on selected topics of interest.

In our child and family friendly clinical space, we strive to provide a personal touch through the entire therapy experience. We welcome feedback from families to continually enhance our programming and services.

COVID-19 Appointment Procedures

As of May 1, 2021, Creighton Pediatric Therapy will allow two additional people back with the patient for their appointment. We request no siblings still at this time. We will allow the patient and up to two additional people to wait in the waiting area for their appointment. We still require you to wear your mask and will continue to screen everyone who comes in for an appointment. Creighton Pediatric Therapy reserves the right to change the policy at any time due to current COVID-19 measures.

Creighton Pediatric Therapy will require all patients 12 years of age and older and other visitors to wear a mask during their therapy visit. Please come prepared with your own mask or bandanna that covers your mouth and nose. Thank you.

Due to COVID-19 we have changed the clinic admission procedure for patients and enhancing the infection control procedures for care providers in accordance with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). If a patient presents with a cough or fever, they will be given a mask, have their temperature taken and asked to reschedule their appointment once they receive a physician’s note indicating they can return to therapy.

If you currently feel sick, please reschedule your therapy appointment, and call your physician. This is especially true if you have a fever, cough, sneezing, or shortness of breath. The same thing applies if you have had any of these symptoms in the last 48 hours.

If you have traveled outside of the United States, please reschedule your appointment or ask your therapist if your child is appropriate for telehealth services.

To reschedule an appointment or if you have questions, call our main phone number at 402.280.2200.
