Project adds 5th floor, patient beds to existing tower
Medical City Arlington has completed construction on its state of the art Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit, located on an all new 5th floor addition to the hospital. The $12 million project is part of an ongoing $100 million facility expansion and renovation investment. The hospital celebrated with a ribbon cutting today.
“Medical City Arlington is steadfast in our commitment to increase our capacity, capabilities and efficiency in order to serve the healthcare needs of Arlington and surrounding communities,” says Keith Zimmerman, CEO of Medical City Arlington. “Offering patients the opportunity to undergo rehabilitation therapy before leaving the hospital sets us apart from other facilities in the area. Our highly-skilled patient care team is dedicated to designing individualized rehab programs for each patient.”
Medical City Arlington has staffed the Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit with a patient care team that includes a physician specialized in physical medicine and rehabilitation as well as certified therapists and nurses. Patients who have had debilitating injuries such as stroke, multi-trauma, hip fracture, amputation or neurologic disorders can be treated before returning home.
Each of the new 16 spacious private patient rooms include flat screen LED TVs, safety monitors and a separate bath. The unit expansion also features a patient and family dining area, an apartment-like room for patients to practice home and self-care skills including cooking, laundry and bathing, and a large rehabilitation gym with the latest equipment and technology and a scenic view overlooking South Arlington.
Currently the only Level III Trauma Center in Arlington, Medical City Arlington is in pursuit of Level II designation, a prestigious and limited qualification with the ability to provide comprehensive emergency care of all essential specialties 24 hours a day. The hospital is located on the corner of Matlock and Mayfield roads.
