KATY, Texas (Covering Katy) – Construction is officially underway on a new 70-bed transitional care rehabilitation center, an 18-bed assisted living center, and a 16-bed secured memory care unit in Katy. A ground breaking was recently held in Katy for the 58,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility. It will be located in the Parkwest Business Park off Interstate 10, adjacent to Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital.
Vibra Healthcare, Memorial Hermann Health System, and Medistad are partners in the development which will be named VibraLife of Katy, and will open during the summer of 2018.
Designed and operated by Vibra, VibraLife of Katy will provide care to patients following an injury or illness and will offer a full range of services – medical, rehabilitative, and social – to both patients and senior residents.
“We are delighted to be jointly pioneering a new post-acute care service model with Memorial Hermann,” said Brad Hollinger, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Vibra Healthcare. “Memorial Hermann has an exceptional reputation for the delivery of outstanding, end-to-end patient care experiences. We are committed to delivering the same high quality, affordable care in this new state-of-the-art post-acute facility.”
Affiliated with Memorial Hermann, the largest non-profit health system in Southeast Texas, and Medistar, a long-standing Houston-based developer and owner of healthcare real estate, VibraLife of Katy will be expertly equipped to serve the Katy area.
Developers say the facility will provide personalized services and care options that will help address the unmet needs of local healthcare providers and patients.
“This unique model provides a community-based care continuum that is conveniently housed under one roof, and will serve as the perfect bridge between an acute care stay and home for the patients we serve,” said Carl Josehart, Senior Vice President and CEO of Post-Acute Care Services for Memorial Hermann.
“VibraLife of Katy sets a new standard of excellence in post-acute care – a result of the innovative vision and uncompromising commitment to patient-centered care shared by Vibra and Memorial Hermann. For this important project, Medistar has worked diligently to align the real estate solution to enhance operational, clinical and financial efficiencies with an exceptional experience for patients, providers and guests,” said Monzer Hourani, Chief Executive Officer of Medistar.
