WMMC strives to meet the rehabilitation needs of our patients. Our highly-trained therapists provide specialized physical, occupational and speech therapy with care plans designed to meet the needs of each individual patient. In the Rehabilitation Services department, we make it our goal to help you meet your goals in order to live life to its fullest. We achieve this by developing a care plan specific to your needs in order to develop the skills needed to move beyond disabilities or limitations. For more information please contact the WMMC Rehabilitation Services department at (660) 262-7536. A physician referral is required for therapy treatment. Medical insurance generally covers therapy; however, each insurance plan is different. Your specific insurance carrier can tell you about your exact coverage, and our staff will be glad to assist you in determining your benefits.

Our highly trained speech therapy staff includes five Speech-Language Pathologists. Speech therapists evaluate and treat disorders of pronouncing or articulation, language, fluency (stuttering), dyslexia, voice, feeding, swallowing, and combinations of these. Speech therapy also treats delays in acquiring speech and language, difficulty with reading, writing, and listening to allow patients to communicate functionally. Medical conditions or injures that could be appropriate for speech therapy include but are not limited to CVA (stroke), traumatic brain injury, autism spectrum disorders, auditory processing disorders, and developmental delay. Our speech therapists will strive to increase the functional ability of their patients to communicate and perform oral-motor tasks effectively and appropriately.
