LONGVIEW, TX, June 27, 2014—Treviso Transitional Care, a post-acute

transitional health care center, today announced that Longview Orthopedic Surgeon

Stephen Littlejohn will serve as its medical director. Littlejohn is a member of the

Longview Orthopaedic Clinic Association (LOCA) medical practice, which he joined in

1997.

“We are pleased to have Dr. Littlejohn as medical director,” says Treviso

Administrator Sharon Carter. He’s a nationally recognized orthopedic surgeon with an

extraordinary reputation here in the Longview and the surrounding area.”

Littlejohn is a native of nearby Marshall, Texas. He completed his undergraduate

studies at Baylor University and his medical doctorate at The University of Texas at

Galveston. His internship and residency were done at The University of Mississippi

Medical Center in Jackson, MS. Littlejohn also completed an advanced AO Trauma

Fellowship in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. AO Trauma is a medical specialty that focuses on

musculoskeletal trauma, disease, and fractures, and the related subsequent complications

and problems. Dr. Littlejohn was recognized by CareChex in 2013 as a top 5% physician

in the U.S. for overall surgical care.

Littlejohn is a member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons,

Texas Medical Association and Gregg County Medical Association. Locally, he has

served as a coach for the Greater Longview Soccer Association, and is part of the Gregg

County Historical Museum Board of Directors and Good Shepherd Foundation. He and

his family are members of Trinity Episcopal Church.

In addition to Dr. Littlejohn, Treviso also announced two members of its

management team: Sharon Carter, administrator; and, Velesa Jones, director of nursing.

Carter is an east Texas native with 20+ years’ experience in transitional care management

and clinical operations. She completed her bachelor’s degree in nursing at Stephen F.

Austin University. Carter worked in ICU/CCU at Trinity Mother Francis Hospital before

moving into transitional post-acute health care. She has served as a director of nursing,

administrator and regional director of operations during her extensive career in post-acute

health care management.

Jones earned her nursing degree at Central Texas College, and brings an

impressive clinical services track record to the Treviso team. She previously worked in

the ICU at Scott & White and was a trauma nurse at Parkland Hospital in Dallas. Jones

also served in the Good Shepherd Hospital System as an ER nurse and case manager.

Prior to transitioning into post-acute health care, Jones served as legal nurse consultant

and case manager for more than 10 years.

Located at 1154 East Hawkins Parkway, Treviso Transitional Care will offer

private transitional care suites in a beautifully designed 55,951 square foot building,

including a 3,200 square foot rehabilitation gym. Treviso will primarily provide short-

term care and rehabilitation services to patients covered by Medicare and managed care

plans, with the objective of helping patients recover as quickly as possible and transition

back to their lifestyle. Treviso Transitional Care will afford patients and the local medical

community a new post-acute destination that integrates clinical care with wellness,

rehabilitative therapy and health education.
