ROCKWALL, Texas (June 4, 2021) Highland Meadows Health and Rehabilitation, Rockwall’s premier nursing and long-term care facility, is delighted to announce that it is now networked with all United Health Care plans including UHC Commercial, AARP, Secure Horizons, Wellmed, Silverback and UHC Medicare Advantage. This additionally accepts Medicare, Medicaid, Private Payroll, Private Insurance, Humana PPO, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, Baylor, Scott & White and WellMed.
“This is great news as it makes Highland Meadows even more accessible to families and loved ones in our community,” said Gracen Hawley, owner / administrator of Highland Meadows, LNFA, MA, CCC-SLP. “This means we are able to provide more patients with the quality care and personalized attention they deserve. “
Highland Meadows, located at 1870 S. John King Blvd., is a private 120 bed facility serving long term residents and short term rehabilitation patients. They are committed to healing, helping and improving the quality of life for those in their care by focusing on the physical, spiritual and emotional well-being of the patients.
Strikingly beautiful, immaculate and spacious, the state-of-the-art facility offers skilled nursing and comprehensive rehabilitation programs, including inpatient and outpatient physiotherapy, Fast Track Ortho, occupational therapy, speech therapy, IV therapy and a myriad of other services as required. Their professional and licensed care team specializes in stroke recovery, orthopedics, wound care management, pain management, post-surgical rehabilitation and diabetes. A doctor does rounds seven days a week, and their medical director, Dr Tony Bui, is a board-certified and licensed physiatrist who works on-site Monday through Friday. Highland Meadows also has its own in-house lab, dramatically reducing the time it takes to draw and process state lab results.
“Ultimately, this leads to better care and drastically reduces our return rates to hospital,” said Gracen. “It’s a space that no other healthcare facility in the region has ventured into.”
There is a large, fully equipped gym and a dedicated room that serves as a simulated home environment, complete with kitchen appliances, a washer and dryer – for functional therapy.
“This helps ensure that each patient gets the best possible outcome in the shortest time possible, combined with the individual care, guidance and support they deserve,” said Gracen. “The average stay for most of our rehabilitation patients is 17 days, well below the national average. “
Physiotherapy members are employed by Highland Meadows – without a contract – another distinction that sets this establishment apart from others.
Highland Meadows also recently introduced new members to its professional care team, including Dr. John Paul Benavides, DO, who specializes in pain management; Dr. Claire Brenner, MD, Board Certified Infectious Disease Specialist; Dr Yousef Abou-kayya, MD, board certified in Respirology, Internal Medicine, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine; as well as Hiruy Berta, RN, BSN, who is our director of nursing.
Inside Highland Meadows you will find fully furnished living suites, spacious private and semi-private bedrooms with flat screen TVs and internet access, clean and luxurious restrooms, community dining room with meals prepared by chef and specialty menus, activity areas, beauty salon hair salon and barber – all located on beautiful grounds in Rockwall.
Monthly activities like bingo, Bible study, choir, church services, group exercises, men’s groups, dance parties, and ice cream social activities help residents stay engaged. Transportation services are provided to ensure patients can get to their follow-up medical appointments.
