Mesquite Rehabilitation Institute Recognized in Top 10 Percent of Rehabilitation Hospitals Nationally - for 3rd Consecutive Year.

Mesquite Rehabilitation Institute, located at 1023 N Belt Line Road, Mesquite, Texas, 75149, has been ranked in the top 10 percent of inpatient rehabilitation facilities nationally for the 3rd consecutive year.

The ranking was provided by the Uniform Data System for Medical Rehabilitation (UDSMR), a not-for-profit corporation that was developed with support from the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research, a component of the U.S Department of Education. It ranks rehabilitation facilities based upon care that is patient-centered, effective, efficient, and timely.

"We continually strive to provide high quality care to our patients, so it's exciting to be recognized as a national leader - especially for 3 years in a row," says Brian Abraham, CEO of Mesquite Rehabilitation Institute. "But what I'm most pleased about are that patients right here in our community can receive the highest level of rehabilitative care available nationally without having to leave the area."

UDSMR, which administers the world's largest medical rehabilitation database, provides common language and measurement tools to monitor patient results.

"Through UDSMR, we collaborate with our peers throughout the United States to share information and establish best practices for patients," says Abraham. "This helps us elevate rehabilitative care for everyone across the United States.

Mesquite Rehabilitation Institute has been a member of the Mesquite community since 2010. It provides intensive physical rehabilitation services to patients recovering from strokes, brain and spinal cord injuries, and other impairments as a result of injury or illness. It is certified by the Joint Commission as a Stroke Center for Excellence. Mesquite Rehabilitation Institute also provides outpatient services for rehab, as well as a Parkinson's exercise program and a Stroke support group.

While it was not her home, Mesquite Rehabilitation Institute is close to the heart of one Sammie Motley Coates.

Her family goes back to the beginning roots with many of the old names that helped start Mesquite.

And with 91-year old’s recent trip to the institute to rehabilitate her knee after knee replacement surgery, the growth of Mesquite truly comes full circle. She said she recognized something familiar about the place as she was pulling up to the Institute.

“When the ambulance pulled into the driveway, I told them ‘I raised my kids right here,’” Sammie said. “I just feel like I am coming back home to get well.”

The story begins 58 years ago when Sammie and her husband purchased some land in a small little farm town East of Dallas. The little plot was between what would eventually become Beltline and Galloway.
