TIRR Memorial Hermann And Belmont Village Senior Living Collaborate To Expand Access To Rehab And Post-Acute Care
HOUSTON–Houston-based Belmont Village Senior Living and TIRR Memorial Hermann recently came together in agreements that will make rehabilitation and post-acute services more accessible for Houston residents. TIRR Memorial Hermann opened a new integrated physician and therapy practice on the Belmont Village campus at 2909 West Holcombe Boulevard this summer. The outpatient facility offers services for adults in the areas of cancer rehabilitation, lymphedema and limb loss integrated with rehabilitation physician care in a single, coordinated practice location. The facility provides a much-needed therapy option for the West U area and for Belmont Village long-term and transitional residents who need the specific rehab care available at the outpatient center.
“Part of our mission is to help people continue to live independently in their community and that’s what makes this collaboration so appealing,” said Carl Josehart, Senior Vice President and CEO, TIRR Memorial Hermann. “TIRR Memorial Hermann Outpatient Rehabilitation West University and its integrated multidisciplinary practice model will allow us to better serve our neighbors in Belmont Village and others in the West University community with world-class care.”
Belmont Village also entered into a service agreement in October making Memorial Hermann Health System an in-house provider of home health services and physical, occupational and speech rehab therapies for residents in their two Houston communities, Belmont Village West University at 2929 West Holcombe Blvd, and Belmont Village Hunters Creek at 7667 Woodway Drive. Each community will be served by its own dedicated Memorial Hermann therapy and nursing teams to provide consistency of care.
“It’s been a dream of mine to collaborate with TIRR Memorial Hermann and figure out how our two sections of the healthcare industry can come together and create a new standard,” said Patricia Will, Belmont Village Founder and CEO. “Having TIRR Memorial Hermann on our campus and in our buildings gives our residents and others in our community a convenient, top notch option for rehab care.”
TIRR Memorial Hermann was once again named the #1 hospital in Texas and the #2 hospital in the nation for rehabilitation by U.S. News and World Report in their 2016-2017 rankings.
