Springfield Rehabilitation to Open Expanded Rehab Wing
Grand Opening Event for Springfield Community on April 12
Springfield, Missouri, March 30, 2018 -- Springfield Rehabilitation and Health Care Center will broaden its rehabilitative care in early April as it opens a new, 30-bed wing on its existing campus.
Stephanie Grant, administrator of Springfield Rehabilitation and Health Care Center, an affiliate of National HealthCare Corporation (NYSE American: NHC), said the new wing dramatically increases the center’s capacity for serving patients in need of physical, speech and occupational therapy and responds to the increasing demand for these healthcare services. The new wing is expected to be open for patients by April 1. The center is hosting a Grand Opening event, open to the community, on April 12 from 3:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m., with a ribbon cutting at 3:00 p.m. followed by a reception and tours of the new wing.
“We have seen a significant increase in rehabilitation care,” Grant said, “as more and more adults are undergoing joint replacements and other planned surgeries. That’s why we invested in this expansion. With an acute understanding of rehabilitative care and decades of experience providing compassionate post-surgical care, we have built a strong rehabilitation presence in this area. Now, with an enlarged and enhanced rehabilitation area, new equipment, and additional amenities, we are confident that we will be able to meet the growing rehabilitation demand while continuing to provide our patients with the highest level of care in an outstanding setting.”
The new $7 million wing totals more than 18,000 square feet. In addition to the 30 new beds, the wing includes a new dining area and a new 2,500 square foot therapy gym with state-of-the-art equipment. Grant said this will further the center’s capabilities to deliver a broad range of rehabilitation services while making the experience for the patients more enjoyable.
Opened in 1981, Springfield Rehabilitation and Health Care Center is a 120-bed center that has received the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS)’s 5-Star rating in each of the past nine years. In addition, it has been honored with the Silver American Healthcare Quality Award. The center focuses on meeting the needs of patients through its flexible, interdisciplinary approach to health care, centered on caregiver compassion delivered in a comfortable, home-like environment.
“Our outstanding reputation for quality care is strong in this area,” Grant continued. “We feel this new wing will enable us to deliver that level of care to more individuals in the greater Springfield area. We look forward to welcoming the community to view it first-hand at our Grand Opening on April 12.”
