Location: Indiana, United States

I became a Professor Emeritus after serving 29 years as a recreational therapy faculty member at Indiana University. I'm a long-time Hoosier, having grown up in Hanover, Indiana. My RT practitioner work was in psych/mental health. After completing my Ph.D. at the University of Illinois, my first faculty position was at the University of North Texas. RT has been a wonderful profession for me as I have had the opportunity to serve as an author and national leader.

RT in Best Hospitals?

I just read the US News rankings of the best hospitals. The top 5 were Johns Hopkins Hospital (Balimore), Massachusetts General Hospital (Boston), Mayo Clinic (Rochester, Minn.), Cleveland Clinic, and Ronald Regan UCLA Medical Center (Los Angeles).

Using this list of the best hospitals I did a Bing search using the terms recreational therapy and the name of each of the hospitals. I found that of the top five, only the Mayo Clinic and the Cleveland Clinic indicated they had RT.

I would be interested to know if this is correct. If you know, please comment.

I work for the Cleveland Clinic and not only do they have RT's on staff, but art therapists and music therapists as well!
