Bridgemoor Transitional Care adds new pulmonary program
AUSTIN, Texas – Bridgemoor Transitional Care has added an advanced care pulmonary program to its list of patient services at its Round Rock and San Antonio facilities, with plans to launch the program at its Fort Worth and Webster locations in early 2020. In partnership with Respiratory Health Services, Bridgemoor is now able to provide around-the-clock, therapeutic treatment for individuals with complex respiratory problems.
“We’re thrilled to add the advanced pulmonary program to our highly skilled, clinical patient care services,” Mark Fritz, president of Bridgemoor Transitional Care, said. “In adding this layer of respiratory therapy, we demonstrate our continued commitment to helping our patients transition back home and to their everyday lives—no matter the nature of care required."
The advanced care unit offers a variety of services for numerous diagnoses. Among them are ventilator weaning, 24/7 registered nursing, on-site nurse practitioner, high-flow oxygen, as well as an on-site lab and pharmacy dispensing system.
Bridgemoor’s innovative model of care serves as a bridge between the hospital and home, helping to reduce the likelihood of a patient returning to the hospital. This practice can reduce total care costs as the patient recovers under the care of a physician-led team.
Respiratory Health Services co-created the original model of respiratory care for the post-acute industry in 1991. The company is recognized as superior in the industry, based on its vast experience in respiratory care, management expertise, credentials and dedication to excellent patient care.
