Trustpoint Rehabilitation Hospital of Lubbock has been named in the Top 10 percent of inpatient rehabilitation facilities in the United States for the 3rd year. The hospital’s care was cited as being as being patient-centered, effective, efficient and timely.
“We strive to deliver this higher level of care as our standard,” says Craig Bragg , CEO of Trustpoint Rehabilitation Hospital of Lubbock. “We are proud to be recognized as a top performing organization, but we certainly don’t take it for granted. Our staff is exceptionally passionate about helping patients reach their full potential through the care we provide. We work daily to ensure patients are reaching their highest levels of ability and independence.”
Trustpoint Rehabilitation Hospital of Lubbock was ranked in the Top 10 percent from among 870 inpatient rehabilitation facilities nationwide by the Uniform Data System for Medical Rehabilitation (UDSMR), a non-profit corporation that was developed with support from the U.S. Department of Education, National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research. The UDSMR maintains the world’s largest database of rehabilitation outcomes.
“If you take into account that a national study has previously shown that inpatient rehabilitation facilities provide better long-term results for patients, being ranked at the top of that group validates the quality of care we provide,” says Dr. Roger Wolcott, Medical Director of Trustpoint Rehabilitation Hospital of Lubbock, referencing a study commissioned by the ARA Research Institute that showed patients treated in inpatient facilities experienced improved quality of life as compared to skilled nursing facilities.
“To provide the highest level of rehabilitative care available in the United States to our own community is truly rewarding,” Bragg says. “This means our family, friends, and neighbors don’t need to leave West Texas to receive the best care available.”
Through the UDSMR, Trustpoint Rehabilitation Hospital of Lubbock also will collaborate with peers throughout the nation to share information and establish best practices for patients. “This helps elevate rehabilitative care for everyone across the United States,” Bragg says.
