Another Garland medical center set to close next month
The Select Specialty Hospital on Marie Curie Drive is the most recent medicinal office in Garland to declare plans to close its entryways.
The most recent day of tasks is Feb. 9, the Pennsylvania-based wellbeing framework that works the healing center affirmed on Tuesday.
The office, which centers around patients with intense or constant respiratory issue, sits on the third floor of Baylor Scott and White Medical Center of Garland.
A year ago Baylor declared it would close that Garland area due to a patient deficiency. Select Specialty rented the east and west wings of the office's third floor.
"We hope to have all patients released by Feb. 2 to either another intense care office or home, if proper," Shelly Eckenroth, VP of correspondences for the Select Medical wellbeing framework, revealed to The Dallas Morning News.
A notice from the Texas Workforce Commission released Tuesday indicates that 96 employees will be laid off next month. Eckenroth said the system, which operates 166 facilities across Texas, is exploring opportunities to move affected staff to other facilities in its North Texas network.
That includes a total of 50 specialty hospitals, physical therapy and rehabilitation centers, in Dallas and the surrounding area.
