CHRISTUS Inpatient Rehabilitation is Highly Ranked
CHRISTUS Mother Frances Sulphur Springs Inpatient Rehabilitation Center was ranked in the top tier out of almost 900 rehabs whom UDS (Uniform Data System) services. The Uniform Data System (UDS-PRO) is an annual reporting system that provides standardized information about the performance and operation of inpatient rehabilitation centers.
Our Inpatient Rehabilitation Center performance in Length of Stay time exceeds the expectation when compared to both the region and the nation in 21 different categories. Additionally, we continue to exceed the region and nation with stroke length of stay. This is not a surprise as we are accredited as a Joint Commission Primary Stroke Center that reflects our commitment to providing safe and quality patient care.
The UDS high ranking was made possible by a collaborative effort from all of our different departments from the EMS all the way to Physical Therapy. We provide such quality of care that the patient meets their goals and moves their way from inpatient floor stay to inpatient rehab to home in an efficient manner. We are very proud of our teams!
Book Drive for Ethiopia
We would like to ask the community to help in collecting books to send to Ethiopia. The books can be used or new, for any age group. Pejman Pirmoradi, one of our CHRISTUS pharmacists, recently traveled to Ethiopia for business and had the honor of meeting with the Ethiopian Minister of Women and Social Affairs. She told him about her goal of donating one million books for the Abrehot Library in the capital city, so Pejman pledged to donate 100,000 books to this effort. We are collecting books here at the hospital. Come in to the front entrance of the hospital and someone at the front desk can show you where to leave them. You may reach out to email@example.com for any questions. If you are interested in donating monetarily, we have set up a fund through the Hopkins County Healthcare Foundation. You can write a check and earmark it for “Ethiopian library.” Thank you in advance for your generosity.
