Rehabilitation Department Here to Serve Community Needs

Pocahontas Memorial Hospital is very proud of its rapidly growing Rehabilitation Services Program. Rehabilitation services are available for anyone in need of treatment in the recovery of a surgery, injury (including sports injuries), illness, or other medical condition.  Physical Therapy services have long been the hallmark of the hospital’s rehabilitation services, however PMH also offers occupational and speech therapies.

Services are available both on an inpatient and outpatient level. If your health care provider recommends that you seek one of these types of therapies, you can schedule an appointment with PMH’s program just like any other therapy office.

An important component of the Rehabilitation services offered at PMH is the Skilled Rehab or “Swing Bed” program. Swing Bed is a skilled nursing program that you can be admitted to after any qualifying illness or surgery to receive rehabilitation therapy or special medical treatments. Therapies could include not only physical or occupational therapies, but respiratory therapy as well.  Treatments may also include wound care or IV antibiotics.

If you have any questions about the Rehabilitation services at PMH or would like information on scheduling an appointment, please contact the department at 304-799-1015.
