Rehabilitation Services

Our commitment to community.

Pocahontas Memorial Hospital offers a full range of Rehabilitation services for both inpatients and outpatients, including Physical, Occupational, and Speech therapies in our brand new, state of the art Rehab Center at PMH. Inpatient services are provided on a short term basis for individuals hospitalized in acute care or observation status, as well as Swing Bed patients when needed. In many cases, discharged hospitalized patients return as outpatients to continue their recovery without a change in therapists. Outpatient appointments are available for anyone in the community with a medical order.

Services offered.

  • Physical Therapy — Physical Therapy addresses restoring function following a wide variety of surgeries, medical conditions, and trauma. Patients are closely supervised as they practice special exercises to recover mobility and strength. Procedures include: therapeutic exercises, gait and balance training, pain modalities, heat and cold, and specialized exercise equipment.  We offer Physical Therapy services at both PMH and our Richwood Clinic location.
  • Occupational Therapy –– focuses on helping people across the lifespan to do the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of meaningful daily activities (occupations) and exercises.  In many cases, this can include training in modification and adaptation of bathing, dressing, eating, writing, and being able to access the home safely.  
  • Speech Therapy – Speech therapy is not just for children, but for adults as well. Speech therapy can provide life-changing treatment, support and care for people of all ages who have difficulties with communication, or with eating, drinking and swallowing.
  • Skilled Nursing (Swing Bed) Program – A skilled nursing program that you can be admitted to after any qualifying illness or surgery to receive rehabilitation therapy or special medical treatments. Therapy is available in not only physical or occupational therapies, but respiratory therapy as well. Treatments would include wound care or IV antibiotics.
