Pate Rehabilitation reports that it has added a new location, Savanna Oaks Ranch, to extend its therapy programs to support individuals with acquired brain injuries (ABIs) in the Fort Worth, Texas community. The resident facility’s ribbon cutting event is slated to take place September 20. The event will feature informative speeches, a health fair, and giveaways for visitors from the local community, the release notes.
Pate Rehabilitation adds that during the ribbon cutting event, in recognition of the reported 16 seconds that an individual sustains a TBI in the US, TryMunity.com, a social networking site for traumatic brain injury (TBI) survivors, will give away a BMX bicycle and helmet every 16 minutes. Pate Rehabilitation also notes that it will offer event attendees a Continuing Education Unit (CEU) course, “The Brain, Brain Injury and Recovery,” which will provide an overview of anatomy, types of brain injury, complications and treatment.

Kent Hayden, president of Pate Rehabilitation, emphasizes the importance behind the addition of Pate’s new location, noting that ABI patients and their families face long-term challenges, making it, “critical that programs and services supporting their recovery are easily reachable. With facilities in Anna, Dallas, and now Fort Worth, we can provide comprehensive therapy services to patients throughout the local area.”
The 13,000-square foot, 16-bed residential facility offers patients private suites during the transition from acute care at area hospitals to post-acute residential rehabilitation. According to the release, Savanna Oaks Ranch will also see the addition of a second building to include a 14,000-square foot treatment facility with a swimming pool featuring underwater treadmills, jets to enhance recovery, and cameras to track gait analysis.
Pate Rehabilitation reports during the interim, it will continue to provide treatment for Fort Worth patients at its temporary facility in Watauga.
