Paragon Healthcare Group unveils its latest San Antonio facility

Paragon Healthcare executive leadership revealed the results of an extensive four month renovation of their San Antonio Residence and Rehabilitation Center(SARR) recently at 7703 Briaridge Drive with hundreds of health professionals and community members attending the much anticipated unveiling. “Our company believes in providing the highest quality of care while ensuring our patients feel as closely tied to home as possible,” said Monica Abrego-Elmer, Regional Director of Marketing for Paragon. “With in-suite tablets and technology designed to keep patients connected to family combined with a facility designed to keep people engaged with their daily habits and lives; we are truly delivering the highest standard of care and comfort for our patients.”

The spectacular renovation, originally envisioned and then implemented by Steve Klahr, Director of Special Projects at Paragon Health Care Group provides 30 private suites and can serve up to 80 patients in total. According to Abrego-Elmer, “by paying attention to the details, keeping patients active in basic daily activities, delivering high quality amenities, excellent dining and quality rooms; Steve’s original vision now helps those who are with us to stay focused on what they need to do to heal. Our smaller size and family centered approach also ensures our patients feel well taken care of.”    

The State of Texas has an average re-hospitalization rate of 19% after rehabilitation in other facilities while the SARR facility maintains a 5 star rating and less than 8% re-hospitalization. With 94% of patients returning home after receiving services, Paragon’s San Antonio facility and programs are making an impactful difference for the area’s aging community.

Much of the new facility was designed in conjunction with local businesses and professionals like Scott and Greta Yeglic of Built to Bloom. The Built to Bloom team created the redesigned courtyard by hand to include a putting green, fountains, and other amenities for the enjoyment and application of rehabilitation needs in daily life.

Along with the new amenities and grounds also comes the new Rhythms Plus Cardiac Program to help patients speed their recovery from cardiac related diagnosis. “Our center is wonderful, but we know that all of it is done to serve our patients and their families. With programs like Rhythms Plus, we are able to help patients to promptly regain good health and quality of life,” said Facility Administrator, Kate Phipps.
