In the inaugural episode of Oaklawn Health Matters, speech therapist Dava Montgomery talks about programs like LSVT-Loud (Lee Silverman Voice Treatment) and Parkinson’s Voice Project’s SPEAK OUT! therapy programs – both of which she and her Oaklawn colleagues oversee and administer.

About Oaklawn

Oaklawn was founded in 1925 as a 12-bed hospital in a residential home, funded by a group of visionary philanthropists. Now, almost ten decades later, we’ve evolved into a highly regarded regional health care organization, licensed for 77 acute care beds and a 17-bed inpatient psychiatric unit. We’ve continued to be an independently owned not-for-profit hospital, with our main campus residing on the same site as the original hospital, providing facilities, equipment and technology that are usually only found at larger health systems. We enjoy a reputation for advancing medicine and providing compassionate, personal care. Our service area includes Calhoun County and parts of Branch and Eaton counties with a medical staff of more than 300 providers representing over 55 specialties.
