Rehabilitation and Therapeutic Services

Hendry Regional Medical Center provides rehabilitation and therapeutic services to patients and their families in both inpatient and outpatient environments. Physical, Occupational and/or Speech Therapy services are available to patients in the hospital and at two Physical Therapy locations (Clewiston and LaBelle) following accidents or injuries, or for those suffering from orthopedic, neurologic, and other medical conditions. Many people require continued rehabilitation after discharge from the hospital to regain physical abilities and to maintain their quality of life. Hendry Regional Medical Center offers outpatient physical and/or occupational therapy at each of our facilities - LaBelle and Clewiston.
