Improving Care in Bowie

A brand new healthcare facility is now up and running in Bowie.  What was once Bellmire Healthcare is now Advanced Rehab and Healthcare of Bowie.  Along with the change in name comes new services to patients.  

The center's administrator, Tim Peimann said, "The current operation we were in was a building that was 40 years old. The new facility offers us a much more updated environment."

Peimann said they needed the new building to expand and offer more services to patients.

"It gives us the ability to provide state of the art healthcare services to the people in this community and surrounding communities," said Peimann. 

More than 60,000 square feet of new space means more room for better, more advanced treatments for its residents.

"We have an expanded therapy department which offers us the opportunity to provide speech, occupational and physical therapy in a state of the art environment," he explained. 

Rooms for short term stays are also new to the center. They were designed especially for people recovering from surgeries who need closer care.

Peimann said, "A lot of people have misconceptions about nursing facilities as being long term care stays only that is not the case at all, especially for this facility."

The bustling halls and dining room show everyone has made a happy adjustment to their new home and Peimann said,"Residents and their families are very excited about the facility."

Edna Smith visits her loved one often. She said it's a joy to see her family member in a new environment that will help him and others in the community.

"It's really an asset to Bowie and everything and to everyone in here," Smith said. 

Advance Rehab and Healthcare of Bowie is welcoming the community to tour the new facility during an open house on:

  • Date: Tuesday, April 10th
  • Time: 4 p.m.
  • Place: 700 U.S. Highway 287 South, Bowie.
