Since 1953, the Permian Basin Rehab Center (PBRC) has served thousands of patients of all ages and abilities who find themselves in need. The PBRC is the Permian Basin’s only comprehensive, non-profit, multidisciplinary rehabilitation facility that provides speech, physical, occupation therapy and hearing/audiology services. The therapists of the PBRC reach a broad cross-section of the community and bring positive change into the lives of countless individuals. Therapy services are fully coordinated, and bi-lingual employees enrich these services.
Permian Basin Rehab Center’s primary focus is to help any child or adult with a disability or injury who can benefit from our outpatient services. A partial listing of needs served include:
Communication disorders – speech, language, hearing, and voice
Neurological Disorders – stroke, head injuries, spinal cord injuries, Parkinson’s disease, and cerebral palsy
Orthopedic Disorders – injury to bone joint and birth defects
Other – lymphedema, learning disabilities, feeding disorders, dysphagia, mental retardation, developmentally delay, down syndrome, and autism
The PBRC offers an Assistance Program and social worker services to make sure that no one is turned away based on ability to pay or limited access to transportation. The Assistance Program is made possible through community donations and fundraising efforts throughout the year. The PBRC is a preferred provider for most insurance companies including Medicare and Medicaid.
In addition to the therapies outlined above, PBRC also offers several clinics for people that require special services that include the Developmental Clinic and the Cleft Palette Clinic.
The Developmental Clinic is designed to monitor development after the baby is discharged from the NICU. Initial assessments are completed in physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy and audiology. Once initial assessments are completed, the patient is eligible to begin attending the developmental clinic.
The Cleft Palette Clinic allows each family to meet with a social worker and each patient receives a speech screening, a hearing screening and a consultation with the surgeon. Education, resources and recommendations are provided during the appointment. To save families the strain of extensive travel, PBRC provides many of the pre and post operation scheduling and appointments in Odessa at the clinic.
