The Odessa Regional Medical Center (ORMC) Rehabilitation Unit is turning ten years old as of October 1, 2018.
The rehabilitation unit is a comprehensive inpatient program that helps people adjust their lifestyles and accept physical limits caused by strokes, brain injuries, amputations, spinal cord injuries, fractures, and other limiting medical conditions.
In conjunction with the ten year reunion, October is also National Physical Therapy Month. Individuals who have suffered from conditions listed above as well as arthritic conditions can all benefit from physical therapy. Physical therapy helps patients regain their strength and coordination so they can return to a normal lifestyle.
“The goal of our rehabilitation unit is to provide our patients with therapy and education to allow them to return to an independent lifestyle,” said Stacey Brown, president of Odessa Regional Medical Center.
The ORMC Rehabilitation Unit has physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech language pathologists who work with patients individually and through group therapy in a spacious workout room stocked with the state of the art rehabilitation equipment. The unit provides close medical supervision by a physician and 24/7 RN care, all with rehab experience.
