Health Dimensions Rehabilitation Inc.
  About HDR Therapy


To provide the best in rehabilitative and habilitative care to the patients we serve and to help our patients, customers and employees achieve their highest possible level of success.


We value excellence, integrity, teamwork, innovation and ongoing personal and professional development.

Company History:

HDR was formed in 1984 and incorporated in 1987 as a Medicare Certified Rehabilitation Agency providing physical, occupational and speech therapy services.  Although our initial focus was on providing services in skilled nursing facilities, we have expanded our scope to include hospitals, schools, pediatric clinics, outpatient clinics, home health patients, day care facilities and assisted living facilities. In addition, we offer billing and follow-up services to independent therapy clinics. We grew from a small company providing services in three central Minnesota facilities to a company that employs over 200 therapists in Minnesota, North Dakota and Wisconsin.

Employee Owned:

HDR is employee oriented and considers all employees to be our partners.  HDR employees collectively own 80% of the company through the Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP).  This allows all eligible employees to directly share in the growth and financial success of the company.  We believe that HDR should reward all of its employees with more than just the normal pay and benefit set.  We believe at HDR that all of the employees who make the company successful should have a direct share in the company’s future success.


HDR has expanded services to improve the accessibility of care for our patients and to strengthen our position in the health care industry. We are prepared to meet the challenges of the future and see the potential opportunities to make a positive impact in the communities we serve.


Long Term Care:

In long term care facilities HDR provides therapy services to the residents as well as to outpatients and home care patients.  Our goal is to help our patients return to their highest possible level of independence.

Short Term Care:

Sometimes individuals need intense therapy following a stroke, surgery or an accident.  This would require admittance to a Short Stay Unit in a nursing home.  Many patients now receive intensive therapy in the short stay unit of their local nursing home.  The main objective in short stay units is to return home as soon as possible.  Stays average less than 30 days.

Home Care:

HDR is a Licensed Home Care provider. We are able to assist residents in the transition to independent living after being discharged from the hospital or long term care facility. HDR believes that it is important to maintain the continuity of care and to maintain the relationship between patients and therapists.  Patients do not need to be homebound in order to receive therapy services in their home. 

Alzheimer's Programs:

HDR provides therapy services that complement the programs you currently offer. HDR has worked with many facilities to develop programs that meet the special needs of patients diagnosed with dementia. HDR provides training for our therapists in the use of standardized evaluation tools that can be used to determine the cognitive level of a patient as it relates to functional behavior. HDR's therapists recognize the stages of dementia and assist in the development of care plans that address the most effective approach used for this patient population.

Acute Hospital Services:

HDR provides Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy and Speech-Language Pathology in several acute care settings. HDR is dedicated to providing therapy in a timely manner to enhance the patient's functional capacity allowing a quick return to independent living.

Outpatient Services:

HDR provides outpatient services to patients from the long term care settings who have returned to independent living but still need therapy.  These services are offered in free standing clinics and in clinics located within nursing homes. HDR can and does community marketing of outpatient services in conjunction with the facilities we serve.

Senior Living Centers:

Assisted and Independent Living providers are ideally positioned to meet the future needs of our growing elder population.

By having Health Dimensions Rehabilitation (HDR) provide therapy at your senior community, your residents will see the following benefits:

  • Convenient on site therapy services
  • Eliminate scheduling, transportation and weather problems
  • No referral, authorization or billing complications

In addition, the facility is able to offer an important amenity at no cost.

Pediatric Therapy:

HDR opened “Little Steps”, a free standing pediatric clinic, in 1994.  The “Little Steps” clinic, located in Cambridge, Minnesota, offers physical, occupational and speech therapy services to children and young adults from birth to adolescence.

Day Care Setting
In addition to our pediatric clinic we provide therapy at structured early childhood facilities. 

HDR provides physical, occupational and speech therapy services in the following settings.

  • Head Start
  • Birth to Three
  • YWCA/YMCA child care centers
  • Early childhood development settings

Our therapists have enjoyed great success with their patients in all of these programs for a number of reasons.

  • The primary reason for their success has been their ability to offer services on site.
  • We find that many parents simply do not have the resources required to make and keep their children's therapy appointments at outpatient clinics.
  • Single parents often cannot arrange transportation during the day or they cannot afford to miss work for their child's therapy appointment.

Minnesota school systems are required to provide a certain amount of therapy for children that are developmentally delayed or physically impaired.  However, many children do not fall within the narrow criteria that must be met to qualify for services. In addition the schools’ lack of funding limits the amount of services they provide.

Our on site services are also beneficial to the early childhood program itself.  They can offer their clients a valuable service at no cost to their program.  All the center needs to do is provide our therapists with space to see patients during the hours the therapists are at their facility.  HDR obtains all of the authorizations needed, consults with the parents and performs all of the third party billing functions.  We also provide all of the equipment and supplies necessary for therapy services.

"Working Together…Making a Difference."
It's Not a Slogan, It's Our Philosophy.
