CVH has served individuals since in-person since 2012, however, over the past 3 years we have expanded our services to include telehealth/telemedicine/teletherapy services to reach more individuals in need. Teletherapy is therapy provided over live video conferencing. This includes therapy for voice, speech, and swallowing disorders. We enjoy collaborating with rural hospitals, rural clinics, cancer centers, and various healthcare facilities throughout Colorado and Wyoming to serve individuals who would either have to drive extensively for therapy or have to go without addressing their therapy needs.
