The primary mission of the Womack Physical Therapy Department is to provide excellent quality physical therapy care to the beneficiaries of Womack Army Medical Center. Striving to be the leader in Army physical therapy care requires one team between our patients and staff, delivering quality care in a distinctively compassionate manner.
To be the leaders of physical therapy services in the military healthcare system.
We will be a team where patients, therapists and staff have a unified goal to maximize patient health, function, and morale.
We will deliver quality care through optimal access to care allowing patients to receive current evidence based practice in the treatment of musculoskeletal dysfunctions by our highly trained medical professionals.
We will provide distinctively compassionate care to our clients in order to optimize the rehabilitation of each individual. Being a leader in healthcare first begins with listening to our client’s story and understanding their needs.
