High-quality health care in Puyallup is available for the children of this thriving region, thanks to the Mary Bridge Good Samaritan Children’s Therapy Unit.

Located inside the Dr. Donald and Beret Mott Children’s Center, the Children’s Therapy Unit is known as “the Ark” for its unique curved architecture, port-hole windows and family friendly environment — a design inspired by Noah’s Ark.

The Children’s Therapy Unit, one of the nation’s leading neurodevelopmental centers, provides customized physical and occupational therapies to help children with mobility and other skills.
