Therapy Center

The HMC Therapy Center offers a broad range of therapy services, including physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and industrial rehabilitation.

We collaborate with your physician to promote the healing process and work toward your regaining functional abilities lost due to injury or disease. Therapy is a team approach, with the patient as the most important team member. You are an active participant in setting therapy goals and establishing treatment programs, with direction from HMC physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech therapists.
