New location extends Pate’s evidence-based therapy programs to the Fort Worth community
DALLAS—Sept. 12, 2012— Pate Rehabilitation, delivering evidence-based treatment and support programs for individuals recovering from acquired brain injuries (ABIs), today announced the grand opening of Savanna Oaks Ranch, its latest residential facility located in Fort Worth, Texas. The ribbon cutting event will take place on Thursday, Sept. 20 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 232 Bens Trail, Fort Worth, Texas 76120. It will feature informative speeches, a health fair and giveaways for visitors from the local community.
To emphasize that every 16 seconds a person suffers a traumatic brain injury (TBI) in the United States, TryMunity.com, a social networking site for traumatic brain injury survivors, will give away a BMX bicycle and helmet every 16 minutes from 1:00 to 3:00 during the event. The drawing is open to all attendees and winners must be available to take the prize home that day.
For attending rehabilitation professionals, Pate is providing a Continuing Education Unit (CEU) course at 12:15 p.m., which includes an overview of brain anatomy, types of brain injury, complications and treatment titled “The Brain, Brain Injury and Recovery.” The course will be free to the first 50 who pre-register.

The 13,000 square foot, 16-bed residence features private suites for patients transitioning from acute care at area hospitals to post-acute residential rehabilitation. In the coming years, Pate will add a second building to include a 14,000 square foot treatment facility complete with a swimming pool featuring underwater treadmills, jets to speed recovery and cameras to track gait analysis. In the interim, Pate will continue to provide treatment for Fort Worth patients at its 7,300-square-foot temporary facility in Watauga—located at 8317 Whitley Road, Watauga, Texas 76148.
