New Braunfels Regional Rehabilitation Hospital (NBRRH) is marking its first decade of providing passionate patient care to the community. Since opening its doors in July 2011, New Braunfels Regional Rehabilitation Hospital has become a premier rehabilitation hospital and has played a large role in the recovery and treatment of more than 7,000 patients.
New Braunfels Regional Rehabilitation Hospital has consistently been ranked in the top 10% of inpatient rehabilitation facilities nationwide for providing care that is patient-centered, effective, efficient, and timely. NBRRH is also recognized by the Joint Commission as a center of excellence for stroke and brain injury rehabilitation.
“We are proud of the commitment and dedication of our employees and medical staff,” said Nicholas Nilest, Chief Executive Officer of NBRRH, “Our staff is passionate about helping patients return home at their highest level of productivity and independence. We consider it a privilege to be able to provide this higher standard of care to our community.”
“In the last ten years, we have seen steady growth and a need to expand our services,” says Nilest. “As the population of New Braunfels has grown, we have added programs and services to meet the needs of the community.” The hospital has added specialized outpatient programs such as Parkinson’s, fall prevention, post-COVID, dry needling, and driver readiness programs.
This week, hospital employees, physicians, and patients are celebrating this milestone of a decade of medical excellence. “Our celebration this week is designed to help us express our gratitude to our staff and local physicians who have helped us become the premier rehabilitation provider in Central Texas,” says Nicholas Nilest.
NBRRH, at 2041 Sundance Parkway, is a 40-bed, freestanding, acute-care rehabilitation hospital offering therapy for patients suffering from functional deficits due to conditions such as stroke, amputation, brain injury, joint replacement, major trauma, Parkinson’s disease, spinal cord injuries, and work-related injuries.
Its rehabilitative services include aquatic, cognitive, physical, occupational, and speech therapy, case management, community re-entry, and rehabilitation nursing.
“We are grateful to have served our community for the last decade and look forward to providing rehabilitative services and independence to New Braunfels and surrounding communities for decades to come,” said Nilest.
