DALLAS, Nov. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Vibra Healthcare, a national operator of specialty hospitals and outpatient physical therapy centers, announced today that it will open a long term acute care hospital (LTACH) in DeSoto, Texas. The company will transfer the operations of its current Dallas facility to the new DeSoto location.

Vibra Specialty Hospital in DeSoto is located at 2700 Walker Way and will open with the completion of regulatory approvals. The new 37,790-square-foot DeSoto facility features 40 private licensed long term acute care beds, including 12 ICU rooms and 28 private medical surgical suites, a CT scanner, Fluoroscopy suite and a dedicated three-station dialysis unit.

The decision to transfer the operations and provide critical services in the southern Dallas County market is good for patients and the community, according to Brad Hollinger, founder, chairman and chief executive officer.

"While we have been quite successful working with key referral sources in the Dallas Medical District, we recognized it was a solid business opportunity to expand Vibra Healthcare in the rapidly growing market of southern Dallas County," Hollinger said. "We were able to reposition our operations in a way that strengthens the healthcare delivery system and provides the best quality care to our patients and community."

When the transfer of operations to DeSoto is complete, there will be six Vibra specialty hospitals in Texas, including Vibra Specialty Hospital in DeSoto and Atrium Medical Center in Corinth, which are both in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.
