Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System offers speech-language pathology services while patients are in the hospital and as outpatients. Speech-language pathologists are involved in specialized treatment programs benefiting patients with deficits.

Speech-Language Pathologists are healthcare professionals who serve individuals, families, and groups from diverse linguistic and cultural backgrounds.
