Baptist Community Services Announces Service Transition
Baptist Community Services (BCS) plans to phase out its short-term rehabilitation services at The Arbors, 1910 Medi Park Drive, by year-end, according to BCS President Steve Dalrymple. All current rehabilitation patients will continue to be served until their stay – which typically lasts 14 days – is complete.
During the transition, staff members at The Arbors will be given the option to transfer laterally to a facility they choose at BCS’s Park Central campus in downtown Amarillo. They will maintain their current salary and seniority.
“Regulatory changes, market conditions, and developments in the skilled nursing/rehabilitation industry have led to this decision,” Dalrymple said. “Transitioning our excellent staff from the Arbors to Park Central will make a positive impact on the care and services we provide.”
Baptist Community Services operates the senior retirement campus Park Central in downtown Amarillo. Park Central offers a broad continuum of care that includes five independent living facilities – Park Place Towers, The Continental, The Harrington, The Talmage, and Plemons Court – as well as assisted living at The Moore, long-term care at The Ware, and memory care at The Sycamore. BCS also operates the Amarillo Town Club fitness facility; Snack Pak 4 Kids, a food program to end weekend hunger for school-aged children in the region; and the High Plains Christian Ministries Foundation, which promotes Christian programs and healthcare services in the region.
