Rehabilitation Services

After undergoing major surgery or neurologic conditions, many people find daily tasks a little more difficult to accomplish. Returning patients to their everyday routine is the goal of OU Medical Center Edmond 's therapy services department. Our knowledgeable staff provides inpatient and outpatient speech therapy and occupational therapy as well as inpatient physical therapy to Edmond and the surrounding areas.

Our expertise in improving independence through self care guides every patient session, and all therapies are conducted in a comfortable setting designed to maintain the dignity of those we serve.
