Missouri Rehabilitation Center accepts Medicare, Medicaid, workers' comp and private insurance. A sliding scale means assistance may be applied for Missouri patients without a funding source. Missouri residents are charged according to their ability to pay as determined by the scale. No medically appropriate Missouri residents will be denied admission because of inability to pay.
Apple Hill Gift Shop is located within our building. When you purchase from us, your purchases are tax-free and all proceeds directly benefit patient care.
Hours: Monday through Friday - 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Ginn Mission Park
Ginn Mission Park is a unique outdoor mobility course with a variety of realistic challenges for patients.
Our mission is to help patients achieve maximum independence. Ginn Mission Park helps us achieve that mission. This attractive park, designed specifically for therapeutic purposes, contains various inclines and surfaces similar to those patients may encounter when they return to their home and community.
The park allows therapists to simulate real-life situations such as crossing a yard, going to a lake or walking down a driveway to get mail. Other functional uses of the park include cognitive exercises designed to improve memory, vision and problem-solving abilities.
Patients, visitors and staff members enjoy the beauty and tranquility of this unique way we make our mission come alive.
Mail, packages and flowers are delivered to patients Monday through Friday, except on holidays.
Mail should be addressed as follows:
"Patient's full name"

We offer a cafeteria on the main level which offers breakfast, lunch and dinner every day.
