A Helping Hand

As the only comprehensive rehabilitation center in the area, Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Stephenville offers the services required for patients across the community to make full recoveries.

Following a joint replacement procedure or traumatic injury, rehabilitation is key to retaining muscle strength, movement and other functions. To ensure no physical ability is lost, physical therapy regimens must be undertaken to strengthen weak joints and retrain
parts of the body. At Texas Health Stephenville, a wide range of rehabilitation services means that a vast majority of patients can continue their healing process.

“Our goal is to provide a comprehensive center for patients in our area to continue their rehabilitation and eventually regain full function,” says Shane Wall, P.T., director of
Rehabilitation Services at Texas Health Stephenville. “We work continually to ensure our patients have access to the services they need when they need them.”

Texas Health Stephenville’s comprehensive center offers services that run the gamut of rehabilitation needs, including:

• aquatic therapy

• balance training and fall prevention

• hand therapy and splinting

• pediatric and adult speech therapy

• pediatric physical therapy

• return-to-work preparation

• swallowing therapy

Each patient receives individualized care geared toward achieving personal goals. From short-term therapy to chronic conditions, the staff members at Texas Health Stephenville
are prepared and trained to assist patients no matter how long their road to recovery may be. Patients across the area have access to the equipment, staff and community of healing
necessary to overcome obstacles and regain function.

For the rehabilitation staff members at Texas Health Stephenville, simply having necessary services is one thing, but making them accessible is quite another. Given this challenge, the convenient location of outpatient rehabilitation services offered by the hospital provides for an ease of continuity that would be lost if patients were required to travel great distances.

“At our facility, we understand that traveling can often be difficult for patients undergoing rehabilitation,” adds Wall. “By offering our services locally, we can make sure our patients receive the quality care necessary to make an appropriate and timely recovery.”
