Joint Venture Opens Texas Rehabilitation Hospital in Arlington Partnership to Help Improve Patients Quality of life and Function

Sep 03, 2015 09:40AM, Published by Kevin, Categories: Wellness, Today Health



Officials from Texas Health Resources, Methodist Health System and Kindred joined together to open a 40-bed freestanding inpatient rehabilitation hospital back in July in Arlington. The long-term rehabilitation hospital will help improve function and quality of life for many patients close to home in Tarrant County. 

The $15.8 million, 46,449 square-foot facility is located at 900 W. Arbrook near Matlock Road and Interstate 20. The Texas Rehabilitation hospital is focused on improving a patient's mobility, self-care, communication and social skills. Rehabilitation programs at this hospital provide care and help patients cope with disabilities by addressing the patient's physical, psychological, and environmental needs. Commonly treated conditions include stroke, brain, and spinal cord injury, amputations, orthopedic injuries and other neurological and musculoskeletal conditions.

"We are happy to have this new innovative rehab facility close to our hospital and the communities we serve," said John Phillips, FACHE, president of Methodist Mansfield Medical Center. "We have the privilege and opportunity to make a positive change in a patient's life after they have gone through a drastic adverse event and help patient's recover."

Earl Swensson Associates Inc. designed the rehab hospital, and TS Bryne was the general contractor.

"This collaborative effort will allow us to provide quality, inpatient rehabilitation services to more patients in Arlington and the surrounding communities," said Barclay Berdan, FACHE, CEO, Texas Health Resources. "By working cohesively and pooling together valuable health resources, we can build an even stronger health network to care for North Texans for many years to come. We want individuals to complete their rehab knowing they have the necessary tools to manage their own wellbeing."

To be designated as an acute rehabilitation hospital, a facility must meet Medicare guidelines of providing at least three hours of therapy, five days a week. Texas Rehabilitation Hospital of Arlington will offer that, and more.

Russ Bailey, TRF chief executive officer, said the facility expects to treat hundreds of patients in 2015.

The rehab hospital offers many options for patient rehabilitation. There is an apartment where patients can practice daily living skills before they return home. There is also an outdoor healing garden and walking trail where patients encounter different walking surfaces like grass and gravel to assist in rehabilitation.

Strategically located between Texas Health Arlington Memorial and Methodist Mansfield Medical Center, the new facility will employ approximately 150 people.
