General

Tillamook County General Hospital welcomes new speech therapist Beverly St. John, MS CCC-SLP. A graduate of the University of Utah, Beverly has worked in Canada as well as the United States as a speech therapist, a program manager and a supervisor of speech therapy students.

Her wide range of speech and language therapy experience in working with patients of all ages includes the following areas: adult swallowing problems (dysphagia) and video-fluoroscopic studies; providing therapy services to patients in their homes as a part of a home health program; working with medical rehabilitation inpatients; consultation and treatment of communication and swallowing disorders through outpatient services.

While she enjoys interacting with all her patients, Beverly has primary interests in working with adults who are recovering from a stroke rehabilitation, treating patients with traumatic brain injury, and working with pre-school age children.

The proud mother of three children, one stepson and two wonderful grand-children, Beverly’s family also includes her dog and two cats. In her leisure time, she enjoys walking on the beach, hiking, singing, reading and gardening.

“I’m looking forward to becoming a part of the Tillamook community,” stated Beverly. “And it’s my pleasure to join the team of excellent therapists of the rehabilitation department at Tillamook General Community Hospital.”
