A company founded by therapists who care.
In 2002, four Louisiana therapists came together with a mission to provide superior therapy services with dedication and compassion unsurpassed by anyone in the industry. Since that time, Therapy Center has become a leading provider of comprehensive therapy services, offered in a broad range of settings including clinics, hospitals, schools, home health and a growing number of skilled nursing facilities.
What sets Therapy Center apart is our strong commitment to providing the best service to our patients and education for our staff. We pride ourselves in maintaining open lines of communication with each facility we work with, supporting our therapists with extra help when caseloads are high, and treating each patient with compassion and clinical skills that are second to none.
The mission of Therapy Center is simple: we are committed to providing superior therapy services with dedication and compassion unsurpassed by anyone in the industry. We accomplish this by making a strong commitment of service to our patients and by providing education and mentoring opportunities for our staff and the facilities we work with.
What sets us apart is our philosophy. Whether in a nursing home, outpatient clinic, home health, or hospital, we believe in working closely with each client to coordinate care and maintain open lines of communication. We weave ourselves into the fabric of every facility that we work with, becoming an integral part of the interdisciplinary treatment team.
We provide an unsurpassed level of care, and we wouldn’t have it any other way!
