Kirkwood OPGiving back to our Veterans

For over three decades, RehabCare has provided distinguished care to the senior population throughout the United States. Our philosophy and mission are simple – to restore and improve the quality of life for those we aid. However, we recognize the need to help those who are not assisted enough, including our country’s veterans. These men and women put their lives on the line to protect the freedoms that we all enjoy every day and deserve the same dedication in return. Our outpatient clinic in Kirkwood, Missouri, enables us to give back and improve the quality of life for those who have served our country.

According to Jacque Cornell, PT and Program Director of the clinic, “The clinic gives us an opportunity for the gold standard and the ability to provide patients a continuum of care, from post-rehab to wellness.” Among the clinic’s very dedicated staff is Kimi Peterson, Wellness Coordinator. Kimi treats about 30 veterans every week, establishing an individualized wellness plan for each. She believes that the reason her patients prefer RehabCare’s clinic over what others may offer is the “personal relationship and atmosphere” that we provide.

Through our relationship with DASA, the Disabled Athlete Sports Association based in St. Peters, MO, the RehabCare Outpatient clinic provides personal adaptive fitness training for all ages and abilities. The staff are continuously re-energized and amazed at the progress that the participants accomplish. DASA encourages everyone to “Discover the Ability Within” and RehabCare is proud to be a part of that mission.

At the end of the day, this clinic does more than treat patients. “It supports our mission statement to “restore function and renew life,” says Jacque.
