THE LEGACY WILLOW BEND HEALTHCARE CENTER HOLDS OPEN HOUSE TO CELEBRATE FIVE YEAR ANNIVERSARY
“When I think of all the people we have assisted over the years, it is truly amazing,” said Pam Duhon, administrator, The Legacy Willow Bend Healthcare Center. “We are proud of the services we provide, and we strive to give patients the ability to reach their highest level of independence. We look forward to making a difference in even more lives in the years ahead.”
The Healthcare Center has changed over the years to better serve the patients. The Healthcare Center is split into three distinct neighborhoods with a total of 60 oversized suites. Attendees toured the physical therapy room, individual rooms and recent renovations in the three living areas.
“We were excited to open our doors to give health care professionals an inside look at our rehabilitation and skilled nursing accommodations,” said Marilyn Israel, executive director of The Legacy Willow Bend. “Two years ago, we enlarged the space for rehab services and added beautiful artwork. We want our patients to feel comfortable and at home when they are with us for short term or long term stays.”
“I am thrilled that we have made such a tremendous impact on the community at large by serving 2,000 patients,” said Brian Barnes, chief operating officer for The Legacy Senior Communities. “We enjoy having health care professionals take a tour of our Healthcare Center. We are here to help their patients, and our staff is trained to improve the patients’ quality of life while they stay with us.”
