Tacoma, Washington (PRWEB) December 05, 2016
The Avamere Family of Companies will celebrate the grand opening of its latest transitional care facility – Avamere Transitional Care of Puget Sound; located at 630 S Pearl Street, Tacoma, WA 98465. The 39,936 square foot short-term, post-acute health care center will provide patients recovering from illness or injury with intensive skilled nursing and rehabilitation services. Much like other Avamere transitional care facilities, Avamere Transitional Care of Puget Sound will focus on returning the people they serve back to the community where they can continue enjoying the things they love most.
“Avamere is focused on living out our mission to enhance the life of every person we serve,” says Gary Wart, President of Avamere Health Services. “We’re very excited to offer residents of Pierce and King Counties a brand new post-acute facility that is designed to help them during some of life’s most physically and emotionally challenging times.”
Avamere Transitional Care of Puget Sound features 60 private rooms and one of the largest therapy gyms Avamere has ever built. The building will add approximately 110 jobs to the community and serve an estimated 1,250 patients annually.
The Avamere Family of Companies currently operates several skilled nursing and rehabilitation facilitates throughout the Tacoma area. In 2014, construction on an extensive remodel for Avamere at Pacific Ridge was completed. The 102-bed healthcare center is designed to give some of Washington’s most vulnerable seniors with psychiatric conditions, dementia, and other forms of cognitive impairment a comfortable community where they have autonomy and access to specific healthcare services.
“We are excited to open Avamere Transitional Care of Puget Sound to the public and begin admitting patients,” says Patricia McDonald, Administrator. “This momentous occasion serves as a celebration of Avamere’s 21-year history of helping people achieve quality healthcare outcomes through our advance care planning practices, data-driven therapy outcome measures and commitment to reducing unnecessary re-hospitalizations through working with our community healthcare partners."
The grand opening ceremony for Avamere Transitional Care at Puget will be held on December 7, 2016 from 11:00 AM – 2:00 PM at 630 S Pearl Street, Tacoma, WA 98465.
