The Reba McEntire Center for Rehabilitation in Denison, TX suffered damage after a water pipe broke and flooded the building with hundreds of gallons of water. News stations in Texas including KXII and KTEN reported the incident on the evening of March 3.
Apparently, the cold weather much of the nation has been facing led to a pipe that burst in the ceiling, dumping so much water that it was ankle deep by the time the fire department arrived.
The Reba McEntire Center for Rehabilitation is a facility for people who have suffered a debilitating illness or injury. Patients who have experienced a brain injury, stroke, cardiac disease, orthopedic issues, amputation or other injury often find hope again through the center’s physical therapists, up-to-date rehabilitation equipment, and aquatics facilities. The center also features residential quarters for people who are still transitioning into their post-trauma or illness lifestyle.
The Reba McEntire Center for Rehabilitation is part of the Texoma Medical Center. It was named for country music’s Reba McEntire in 1994 after over a decade of fundraising concerts for the medical center held by McEntire.
The flood of March 3 did not damage any of the residential areas and was mostly contained to the aquatics center.
