For the 10th year, South Texas Rehabilitation Hospital has been acknowledged for providing nationally recognized rehabilitative care to its patients. The hospital was ranked in the Top 10% of inpatient rehabilitation facilities nationwide for providing patient centered care that is effective and efficient.
“This means that in the Brownsville area, we’re providing the highest level of rehabilitative care available anywhere in the United States right now,” says Leo Garza, CEO of South Texas Rehabilitation Hospital. “Patients and their families don’t have to leave the area to receive the latest in technology and clinical protocols – we’re providing it here in our own backyard.”
The hospital was ranked from among 781 inpatient rehabilitation facilities nationwide by the Uniform Data System for Medical Rehabilitation (UDSMR).
