Las Palmas Rehabilitation Hospital began 2018 with a new medical director and a new look.

Director Zoraya M. Parilla, M.D., has nearly 20 years of experience in rehab care, most recently serving as medical director of Highlands Rehabilitation Hospital in El Paso.

Dr. Parilla completed a postdoctoral fellowship in traumatic brain injury rehabilitation at Baylor College of Medicine’s Institute for Rehabilitation and Research in Houston. She’s certified in brain injury medicine by the American Board of Physical Medicine.

“Dr. Parilla’s experience and expertise, combined with our recent department renovations, will elevate the care we provide for rehab patients,” Don Karl, chief executive officer at Las Palmas Medical Center, said.

Las Palmas Rehabilitation Hospital’s renovations include new lighting and exterior finishes and an upgrade at the nurse’s station. The center’s rehabilitation services include acute therapy, cardiac rehab and both inpatient and outpatient rehab.
