On a daily basis, our staff works together as an integrated team to provide a wide array of services including outpatient physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, audiology, orthotics, prosthetics, and hospice care.
Our Approach to Care
Though it is certainly possible to find programs in West Texas that provide some of the services offered at West Texas Rehab, no other providers offer the full complement of outpatient rehabilitation and hospice care. The majority of those we treat come into our Abilene, San Angelo, and Ozona facilities.
However, many others benefit from outreach programs through which our treatment staff travel throughout the Concho Valley and Big Country.
To improve the quality of life of those we serve regardless of financial circumstance.
