Houston Northwest Medical Center Unveils The Bryan Inpatient Rehabilitation Center

Houston, TX (5/12/2016) – Houston Northwest Medical Center (HNMC) has expanded its medical services with the opening of a new Inpatient Rehabilitation Center. The nearly 5,000-square-foot unit will be unveiled on Thursday, May 26th from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. during an Open House and Ribbon Cutting event that the community is invited to attend.

“Houston Northwest is excited to bring this needed service to our community.  Many of our current patients have to be transferred to facilities all over Greater Houston due to a shortage of inpatient rehabilitation beds in our service area.  This will be a benefit for our patients and their families, as well as an enhancement to the continuum of care provided at our hospital” Tim Puthoff, CEO

“We are excited about the expansion and look forward to sharing our new services with the community.” Janet Mueller, Director of The Bryan Inpatient Rehabilitation Center

In addition to the extra space available in the new department, the rehab staff will have access to equipment designed to provide a challenging rehabilitation experience, with greater attention to their specific needs. The outpatient rehabilitation department at Houston Northwest Medical Center currently offers outpatient orthopedic and neurology patients physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy. The Bryan Rehabilitation Center will fill the gap between the patients’ hospital stay and the outpatient rehabilitation department.

“Our therapists are passionate about providing each patient with an opportunity to optimize their function and provide them with a successful rehabilitation outcome.  This unit is designed to give each patient that opportunity and I am excited to have such a wonderful place named after me.” Courtney Bryan, Director of Rehabilitation Services
