Midland Children’s Rehabilitation Center

Known in the Permian Basin as MCRC, the center has a long, rich history of serving children with all kinds of diagnoses. The programs offered at the center have the sole purpose to change the lives of children and include aquatic therapy, dance/movement therapy, dyslexia tutoring, hippotherapy, occupational therapy, orthotic clinics, physical therapy, speech therapy, and therapeutic riding.

The center is staffed by sixteen licensed therapists, four certified Dyslexia tutors, three equine specialists and a supportive administration. These highly dedicated individuals share a desire to provide neurological, orthopedic, and developmental therapy in a compassionate environment, regardless of a family’s ability to pay. At this time, there is no other rehabilitation center in the state of Texas that operates like MCRC.

The center exists to help children with limitations to reach their highest potential. Many of the individuals MCRC serves cannot be “cured,” but treatment can improve each child’s capabilities so that they are able to enjoy the most independent adulthood possible.
