Team Approach

OMC Rehabilitation Services takes a team approach to meeting each patient's therapy needs. In cases when a patient requires more than one rehabilitation service, all therapists work together with the patient and his or her family to develop and carry out the best possible plan for achieving therapy goals.

Ozarks Medical Center was the first health care provider in this region to offer physical and occupational therapy, as well as speech-language pathology services in inpatient, outpatient, nursing home, home health and school settings.
