Coryell Memorial hosted a Grand Opening Celebration of the new Medical Arts Center that includes DaVita Coryell Dialysis Center, Advanced Wound Care at Coryell Memorial and Physical Therapy at Coryell Memorial.
The open house offered a rare opportunity for a behind the scenes glimpse into the cutting edge medicine that will now be offered to our community. Members of the community were able to tour the facilities, meet the staff and ask questions.
Coryell Memorial’s Chief Executive Officer, David Byrom, thanked the many people involved in bringing these treatment centers to our community. One in particular, Ms. Lucile Garrett Plane, donated a half-million dollars to make the dialysis center possible. Ms. Plane was a philanthropist, community leader and pioneer for women in her field of corrections. The dialysis center building was dedicated in honor of her legacy.
The DaVita Coryell Dialysis Center’s Medical Director, Sheldon Chaffer, MD, Nephrologist, and Laura Waters, Regional Operations Director, with DaVita HealthCare Partners, Inc. shared that a patient receiving hemodialysis usually visits the treatment center 3 times per week for about 4 hours at a time, not including drive time. Providing this service locally to our community will greatly increase the quality of life for patients and their care givers. The dialysis center is expecting to begin treating patients in November.
Advanced Wound Care at Coryell Memorial’s Medical Director, Aaron Humphreys, MD, Orthopedic Surgeon, and his team of Directors, Jeff Mincy, Paul Rambeau and Sharon Brown were available to show community members around the treatment center, including the HBO Chamber, and explain the process of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.
Coryell Memorial’s Physical Therapists, Yvonne Rochelle and Katie Doyle, were there to answer questions and show the community around the new outpatient physical therapy facility. The facility is equipped with individual treatment rooms as well as a large and open, state of the art therapy gym. The outpatient facility services those with musculoskeletal and sports-related injuries, work related and trauma injuries, post-surgical interventions, balance deficits and neurological disorders.
Advanced Wound Care and Physical Therapy at Coryell Memorial are now accepting new patients.
