rehabilitation services

Our hospital provides a comprehensive program that encompasses physical therapy, occupational therapy and a full-service Wellness Center, all conveniently found in one location. We are located on the ground floor of Harrison Memorial Hospital’s campus.

Physical Therapy
Patients who are recovering from an acute injury, a repetitive injury or an illness can benefit from the physical therapy services offered at Harrison Memorial Hospital.
