TYLER – Texas Spine & Joint Hospital today announced it will unveil its recently completed renovation project during a Grand Opening event Thursday, February 21.
"We are excited to show our newly redesigned areas to the community and physicians," says Tony Wahl, Chief Executive Officer of Texas Spine & Joint Hospital. "TSJH has a reputation for delivering the highest quality care and an outstanding patient experience. With this project complete, we can enhance our services even further."
As part of the re-design, the hospital's Pain Center was relocated, including 31 patient prep and recovery bays, and three new Pain Procedure rooms were added. New Admitting Offices, Pharmacy, Lab, Surgical Pre-op Assessment areas and a Café were also built.
In both the new Rose Care unit and the Pain Center, accommodations for patients and their visiting family members were designed to promote a peaceful environment to enhance the recovery and healing process.
The hospital is continuing to enhance its facility. Phase II of the project will include the renovation of five in-patient rooms, a relocation of an additional 15 patient rooms, and the addition of operating rooms. Interiors of 15 outpatient and observation rooms will be updated and a renovation of the Pre-op Holding area, conference rooms and support spaces will also be completed during this phase.
In addition to increasing patient access to high quality care, this $27 million project, which began in October 2011, has also made a significant impact on the local economy by creating 40 new jobs.
"The entire community benefits from this project," says Dr. Paul Detwiler, TSJH Partner and Chairman of the Board. "Our patients and physicians will have greater access to advanced medical facilities and the additional jobs and tax revenue created will boost the local economy for years to come."
The Grand Opening celebration will be 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the hospital, 1814 Roseland Blvd., in Tyler. Hors d'oeuvres will be served and guests can enjoy live music. This event is open to the public.
