In partnership with NovaCare Rehabilitation, Stevens Community Medical Center offers comprehensive Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Speech Therapy for inpatients and outpatients. Our staff of therapy professionals works with you and your physician to develop customized therapy programs that deliver maximum results.

During the duration of the ER construction project ALL NovaCare patients should park in the Upper Parking lot off of Columbia St. and enter in thru Door F, which is marked. For questions, please call 320-589-7658.

Because we are part of a community hospital, we provide a “continuum of care” that enables us to consistently communicate with your primary care physician and others in your care network. Our integrated local market network allows us to effectively partner with physicians, employers, payers and case managers to achieve optimal patient outcomes in a cost-effective manner. We also provide physical therapy and athletic training services to professional sports teams, colleges, universities and high schools.

What to Expect

In order for the SCMC NovaCare Rehabilitation team to provide the best possible treatment, it helps to know what things are expected of you, our patient. The main objective is to care for each patient and help them reach their goal. At your first appointment, our trained therapists will ask you a variety of questions about your injury, your interests, home environment, activity level, and lastly your goals. By carefully documenting this information and taking the time to answer these questions will help create a roadmap for your treatment and, most importantly, get you back to a better quality of life.

Your physical therapist will also check your strength and flexibility. During that first appointment, our goal is to provide information about:

  • Your injury
  • Your treatment plan and how it will help you
  • How many appointments you can expect for your treatment

We often begin treatment during your first appointment, which will be 45-60 minutes.

During physical therapy, we will improve your quality of life and get you back to the activities you enjoy.
