Harlan County Therapy Center

(308) 928-3002





Harlan County Therapy Center is a hospital based rehabilitation clinic, which covers outpatients and inpatients. Our mission is to operate with honesty, integrity and compassion that exceeds the expectations of those who place their trust in us. We have recently remodeled our facility to make it update and add more treatment areas. With this addition, we have a hand/shoulder station with a TV where patients are treated or can relax with some ice after treatment. Rubber flooring has also been installed to decrease joint impact during treatment and agility drills.

We currently supply home football game coverage in Alma for any injuries that may arise. We will work any other sporting event if requested. We are also working on adding a program to teach athletes how to help minimize the risk of ACL tears. Our highly trained staff will continue to stay up to date with the latest research and techniques, and we will continue to look to provide care and programs with the improved health of our patients as our primary goal. Please contact us if you want to get started with any physical, occupational, or speech therapy. If you want to learn more about what we do, call us and we would be happy to answer your questions




We have appointments available from 7:00 am until 4:30pm, sometimes later if needed. A billing coordinator can answer any insurance questions you might have. Check our website for any other questions or to meet our staff.
