Rendering courtesy of KRS

Orange, Calif., and Brentwood, Tenn. — UCI Health and Kindred Rehabilitation Services (KRS), a business unit of LifePoint Health, today announced that they have signed a definitive agreement to create a joint venture to construct and operate a 52-bed, 68,000-square-foot inpatient rehabilitation hospital in Orange County.

The hospital will employ up to 200 people and will be located at 17931 Von Karman Ave., in Irvine, Calif.

The UCI Health Rehabilitation Hospital will serve the growing clinical needs of the Orange County region. The hospital will treat patients recovering from conditions such as stroke, traumatic brain and spinal cord injury, as well as trauma, burn and orthopedics patients.

KRS will manage the hospital’s day-to-day operations, and patients will receive leading-edge care provided by UCI Health physicians and clinical staff, all in private rooms and state-of-the-art rehabilitation facilities.

The partners expect construction on the inpatient hospital, expected to cost about $80 million, to begin by December 2022 and begin admitting patients in late 2025.

KRS has national track record of providing high-quality care as reflected by outstanding patient outcomes and experiences. Nearly 90% of its inpatient rehabilitation hospitals rank in the top quartile nationally in patient care performance metrics.

“We are excited to collaborate with UCI Health to build and operate a new facility that will improve access to high quality rehabilitative care in Orange County,” said Russ Bailey, president of Kindred Rehabilitation Services. “This partnering with a premier academic healthcare system will create a hospital that leverages the clinical innovations and best care practices to deliver outcomes and experiences that improve patients’ lives, and in the process, advances our mission of making healthier communities.”

The rehabilitation hospital will serve patients across the region, including eligible patients treated at UCI Medical Center in Orange, home to Orange County’s only Level I trauma center and regional burn center, in addition to large orthopedic and neurological surgery services and a comprehensive stroke center. It will also serve patients from the new UCI Health — Irvine medical complex now under construction at the UCI campus. The facility, expected to be fully open in 2025, will include a 144-bed acute care hospital and will specialize in orthopedic and neurological surgery.

“UCI Health and Kindred have a shared vision to create the most innovative and comprehensive rehabilitation center on the West Coast,” said UCI Health CEO Chad T. Lefteris. “As Orange County’s only academic health system, UCI Health provides leading critical care to a region of more than three-and-a-half million people — they deserve a state-of-the-art rehabilitation center that offers advanced technologies to help them get back to their lives faster.”

The initiative will expand the UCI Health inpatient rehabilitation capacity from its existing 14 rehabilitation beds at UCI Medical Center in Orange.

“The new rehabilitation hospital will be more than just a patient care facility,” said Jay Han, MD, chief of physical medicine and rehabilitation for UCI Health and the medical center's rehabilitation medical director.

“It will enable clinicians to conduct clinical research, including clinical trials, and advance new rehabilitation technologies to improve healing for patients and help them return to their lives following surgeries and inpatient treatment,” he added.

UCI Health is the clinical enterprise of the University of California, Irvine, and the only academic health system in Orange County. Patients can access UCI Health at primary and specialty care offices across Orange County and at its main campus, UCI Medical Center in Orange, Calif. The 459-bed, acute care hospital, listed among America’s Best Hospitals by U.S. News & World Report for 21 consecutive years, provides tertiary and quaternary care, ambulatory and specialty medical clinics, behavioral health and rehabilitation services. UCI Medical Center is home to Orange County’s only National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center, high-risk perinatal/neonatal program and American College of Surgeons-verified Level I adult and Level II pediatric trauma center and regional burn center. UCI Health serves a region of nearly 4 million people in Orange County, western Riverside County and southeast Los Angeles County. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter.

Kindred Rehabilitation Services (KRS), with 30 stand-alone inpatient rehabilitation facilities (IRFs) across 18 states, is a partner of choice for many major hospital systems in the creation of joint-venture operations that are industry-leading in clinical and operational outcomes. KRS brings proven rehabilitation management and services expertise to help the nearly 30,000 patients we see each year in our specialty hospitals recover and return home quickly from any of a number of conditions, including stroke, brain injury, spinal cord injury, orthopedic injury, neurological conditions, amputation and trauma. Kindred Rehabilitation Services is a business unit of Brentwood, Tennessee-based LifePoint Health.

LifePoint Health is a leading healthcare provider that serves patients, clinicians, communities and partner organizations across the healthcare continuum. Driven by a mission of Making Communities Healthier, the company has a growing diversified healthcare delivery network comprised of more than 50,000 dedicated employees, 65 community hospital campuses, more than 30 rehabilitation and behavioral health hospitals and 170 additional sites of care, including managed acute rehabilitation units, outpatient centers and post-acute care facilities.

Blue Bird Village Project in Brentwood Pulled From Consideration

The City of Brentwood confirmed Friday that a project that would add more than 100 homes along Lone Tree Way has been pulled from consideration and is now dead in the current form.

Eden Housing, or the Episcopal Diocese of California, would now have to submit a new application and proposal to move forward with any project on this land–thus resetting its application clock.

The Blue Bird Village was being proposed as an 8.684 acre development (Lone Tree at O’Hara) of mark-rate housing, first-time affordable homeownership housing, affordable rental housing, a community center, a child care center and a farm. The project would have included several three story building for part of the project

According to the project plan:

Ellen Morris, Associate Director of Real Estate Development at Eden Housing sent a letter to Brentwood city staff asking them to remove the project from the city website as they will not be submitting an application at this time.

Assistant City Manger Darin Gale confirmed the decision and provided Eden Housing’s letter to the city.

Many residents in the city of Brentwood came out against the project for a variety of reasons from zoning, size of the project, location, local impact, lack of parking, to impacting on local neighborhood. Opponents of the project not only took to social media, but spoke during public forums, city council meetings and provided feedback on the project–they even created an online petition.

Eden Housing would now have to submit a new application and proposal to move forward with any project on this land.

According to the Letter by Ellen Morris, Associate Director of Real Estate Development at Eden Housing to the City of Brentwood:

Hi Erik,

Sorry we weren’t able to reach you over phone yesterday. We would like to let you know that Eden Housing, in partnership with the Episcopal Diocese of California, will not be submitting an application for Blue Bird Village at this time. To avoid any confusion, we’d like to request that you remove the pre-application from the City’s website<https://www.brentwoodca.gov/home/showpublisheddocument/5021/637842463551554508>.

As you know, Eden Housing has been part of the Brentwood community since we opened Brentwood Senior Commons in 2007. In Contra Costa County, we have developed and managed 14 properties totaling nearly 1,000 units. We strongly believe that the kind of high-quality, service-enriched housing that Eden builds meets the needs of Brentwood’s residents and neighbors. We hope to continue serving this community for years to come.

Despite our business decision not to file an application at this time, affordable housing in Brentwood remains very important to Eden Housing and the Diocese. For that reason, we will continue conversations with our partners and like-minded organizations so that we may continue to evaluate ways to serve some of the most vulnerable members of our communities.

I’m going to be out through Thursday next week, but Donna Colombo from the Diocese and I are happy to talk with you further when I return next Friday, 5/20. I really appreciate the time and attention you and your staff put to the project – it has been a pleasure working with you.

Have a great weekend,

Ellen

It is unclear if the project will return in the future in the same form, redesigned or is going to be abandoned.

New COVID Test to Treat Sites Now Open in Contra Costa County

Contra Costa residents can now go to several new test to treat sites around the county to get life-saving prescription medication if they test positive for COVID.Three new test to treat locations opened last week in Antioch, Brentwood and Pleasant Hill at state sites operated by OptumServe that were previously used only for COVID testing. A state testing site in San Pablo is also expected to begin offering test to treat services by the end of this week.Patients who go to the sites will take a rapid antigen test and, if positive...

Contra Costa residents can now go to several new test to treat sites around the county to get life-saving prescription medication if they test positive for COVID.

Three new test to treat locations opened last week in Antioch, Brentwood and Pleasant Hill at state sites operated by OptumServe that were previously used only for COVID testing. A state testing site in San Pablo is also expected to begin offering test to treat services by the end of this week.

Patients who go to the sites will take a rapid antigen test and, if positive and symptomatic, they will be connected to a doctor through video. If the doctor deems it medically appropriate, they will prescribe oral antiviral pills (Paxlovid or Molnupiravir).

"These additional test to treat locations, most of which are in areas hardest hit by the pandemic, will provide a big boost to our efforts to eliminate preventable deaths from COVID in Contra Costa County," said Anna Roth, Contra Costa County health director. "These new sites will greatly improve access to COVID treatments, especially in less healthy areas of the county."

In March, President Biden announced a plan [hhs.gov] to roll out test to treat sites across the nation. Up until this past week, there have been only three such sites in Contra Costa County – all located at CVS pharmacies (two in Walnut Creek and one in San Ramon).

The oral antiviral medications were approved for emergency use by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in December. Clinical trials found that Paxlovid reduced a patient's risk of hospitalization and death by nearly 90%. The medications, which require a prescription from a doctor, are free and available to anyone age 12 or older regardless of vaccination status. To be effective, infected patients must start taking them within five days of when their symptoms began.

As has been widely reported [nbcnews.com], the oral antiviral medications have been under-utilized since being authorized by the FDA. One reason for that is supplies of the drugs were initially scarce and healthcare providers were unsure whether it was appropriate to prescribe them. But scarcity is no longer an issue, said Dr. Sofe' Mekuria, deputy health officer for Contra Costa County.

"Supplies of these drugs are plentiful right now," Dr. Mekuria said. "That's why we have been encouraging doctors to more liberally prescribe these medications, which are incredibly effective tools in our fight against severe disease from COVID."

As part of Contra Costa Health's Path to Zero initiative, Contra Costa Health Plan recently opened its advice nurse line (877-661-6230) to any county resident who tests positive for COVID, regardless of insurance, to improve local access to treatment. Advice nurses screen callers and schedule free telehealth appointments with a provider who can prescribe medication.

For more information about oral antivirals and other treatments, visit our COVID-19 Treatments page. Exact locations for state test-to-treat sites can be found on our Get Tested page.

And Petco Love helps find loving homes for pets in partnership with Petco and more than 4,000 organizations — like ours — across North America, with 6.5 million pets adopted and counting.

“Our investment in Antioch Animal Services is part of more than $15M in investments recently announced by Petco Love to power local organizations across the country as part of our commitment to create a future in which no pet is unnecessary euthanized,” said Susanne Kogut, president of Petco Love.

“Our local investments are only part of our strategy to empower animal lovers to drive lifesaving change right alongside us. We recently celebrated the one-year launch anniversary of Petco Love Lost, a national lost and found database that uses pet facial recognition technology to simplify the search for lost pets.”

“Antioch Animal Services staff and volunteers work very hard to ensure the shelter pets from our community receive the best care possible. We are grateful for Petco Love’s support in providing this grant so we may continue our lifesaving mission,” said George Harding, Animal Services Manager of Antioch Animal Services.
