A unique, state-of-the-art skilled nursing facility dedicated to providing personalized post-acute care services has opened in Katy involving VibraLife of Katy, LLC (“VibraLife”), Memorial Hermann Health System and Medistar Corporation (“Medistar”).
VibraLife of Katy, located at 1222 Park West Green Drive in the Parkwest Business Park off Interstate 10 adjacent to Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital, is equipped to serve the Houston community with a fully integrated range of services specially customized to meet the needs of patients recovering from acute injuries and illnesses, as well as elderly residents who need residential care assistance.
"We are pleased to be delivering 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 at VibraLife of Katy.”
Designed by Vibra, which operates numerous hospitals across the country, this new model of post-acute care offers a full continuum of treatment options under one roof, including medical and social services. This cutting-edge concept bridges the gap for patients between the time they are discharged from acute care settings and the time they are able to go home.
“As part of our dedication to advance the health of the Greater Houston population, we are thrilled to be part of such an innovative facility that answers a need in our community for specialized services perfectly tailored to meet individualized needs,” said Dr. James McCarthy, Executive Vice President and Chief Physician Executive at Memorial Hermann. “VibraLife of Katy is taking post-acute care in this region to the next level, offering rehabilitation care, restorative and healing health care and comfortable living accommodations for patients who may need a little extra attention following their hospital stays.”
The 58,000-square-foot facility has 104 beds, including a 70-bed skilled nursing facility, an 18-bed assisted living center and a 16-bed secured memory care unit. Vibra has an affiliation agreement with Memorial Hermann, one of the largest non-profit health systems in Texas, as well as with Medistar, a long-standing Houston-based developer and owner of healthcare real estate.
Medistar Corporation added, “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 worked diligently to align the real estate solution to enhance operational, clinical and financial efficiencies with an exceptional experience for patients, providers and guests.”
