Why Choose Us?
If your child has special needs, you want make sure he or she receives the best care possible. Here are several reasons to choose the Good Samaritan Children’s Therapy Unit (CTU):
Founded in 1966, the CTU is the oldest and largest hospital-based Neurodevelopmental Center in Washington. During the past 37 years, we have helped more than 30,000 children learn to use their bodies and minds to the fullest extent possible.
Our staff is a multi-talented team of highly trained pediatric specialists who inspire children to reach higher and journey far beyond normally prescribed limits. The staff is dedicated to helping each child become as functional and independent as he or she can be.
The results of our programs are measured in terms of whole lifetimes. We are excited about the number of CTU “graduates" who are working and living on their own. Our outcomes are strong testimony to the value of the mission and vision of our program and a great witness to the commitment and resilience of our children and families.
The Donald and Beret Mott Children’s Center is home to the CTU. The center is located on a three-acre site on the hospital campus. The building is designed to tell the story of Noah’s Ark. The architecture provides a backdrop for the daily mission of the program, incorporating a fun atmosphere with therapeutic value.
