As of January 2017, all short-term rehabilitation services are provided at Bivins Pointe – A Wellness Community, formerly known as Childers Place. This technologically advanced facility is located at 6600 Killgore in the Harrington Regional Medical Center.
Bivins Pointe will meet a critical need in the community for rehabilitation services that patients need following a stay in the hospital for surgery, illness or injury. The highly trained staff provides a variety of treatments and therapies to help people regain their independence and return home as quickly as possible.
The new name, Bivins Pointe – A Wellness Community, ties the facility more closely to the Bivins legacy of caring for older adults and reflects the transition of services offered here. While most of Bivins Pointe is dedicated to rehabilitation and skilled nursing services, the building also houses Bfit, an outpatient therapy clinic; a household for long-term care residents; and inpatient end-of-life care provided by BSA Hospice of the Southwest.
Additionally, the beautiful Bivins Pointe honors the memory of Betty Bivins Childers with an outdoor courtyard and a spectacular collection of fine art named in her honor.
