Everest Rehabilitation Hospitals has cut the ribbon and opened its newest 36-private-bed, 41,000-square-foot, modern post-acute care rehabilitation hospital, this one located in Keller, Texas.
The hospital provides comprehensive rehabilitative services and around-the-clock registered nursing care to patients overcoming a variety of illnesses and injuries such as stroke and other neurological disorders, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputations, orthopedic and other chronic complex medical conditions, according to a news release from Dallas-based Everest Rehabilitation.
“While our traditional hospital ribbon cutting festivities are dampened by the Coronavirus, we are ecstatic about opening our fourth identical, 36-bed rehabilitation hospital in Keller, Texas. Rehabilitation hospitals, like Everest, are extremely valuable to the communities we serve as we complete the continuum of care to get patients home. We whole-heartedly believe that patients thrive best when their environment and care far exceed their expectations in the high energy, high quality, modern hospital setting at Everest.”
— Jay Quintana, Everest Rehabilitation’s CEO and co-founder
“We started looking for a site in this part of the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex over 4 years ago, and finally the perfect 5-acre site became available after an exhaustive 2-year search. We are excited to be able to provide one-to-one physical therapy care to our patients, five to seven days a week in this region. Our strong nurse to patient ratio contributes to optimal outcomes in our post-acute care, naturally lit hospitals.”
— Omar Jenkins, Everest Rehabilitation’s CFO and co-founder
The hospital includes physical therapy gyms, a large outdoor (park-like) mobility courtyard for therapeutic use, a HydroWorx aqua therapy system, a fully furnished Assisted Daily Living apartment where a patient can practice “everyday” activities, several family gathering areas, a large open dining hall, a real therapy car, in-house dialysis and an in-house pharmacy.
Each identical 36-private bed Everest Rehabilitation Hospital is designed to expand by 18 additional private rooms. The entire infrastructure (dining, kitchen, parking and mechanical) is already in place for every hospital to support the bed expansion, the release notes.
