HealthSouth to Build New Rehab Hospital in Phoenix

Text size: A A

HealthSouth Corp., Birmingham, Al., has acquired land in Phoenix and plans to construct a new 48,000-sq-ft inpatient rehabilitation hospital. Located at the intersection of N. 91st and Pinchot avenues, construction is expected to begin at the site in the fourth quarter, with completion by the third quarter of 2013.

Similar to HealthSouth's Mesa hospital completed in 2009, the Phoenix facility will include specialized rehabilitation programs using advanced technology to help patients recover from major injuries and surgeries.

Plans for the new hospital include 40 private rooms where inpatient rehabilitative care will be offered, including specialized rehabilitation programs using advanced technology to help patients recover from a major illness, injury or surgery.

“This new hospital will complement our three hospitals located in Scottsdale, Glendale and Mesa by providing residents in southwest Phoenix with convenient access to our high-quality inpatient and outpatient rehabilitative programs,” says Jerry Gray, HealthSouth's west region president. With other locations in Tucson and Yuma, this new facility will become HealthSouth's seventh hospital in the state.

Company officials estimate that 300-400 construction jobs will be created during the building process.

The one-story building is being designed by Boulder Associates Architects. The Boulder, Colo.-based firm has designed several HealthSouth projects in Arizona, including the HealthSouth East Valley Rehabilitation Hospital in Mesa, which opened in 2009. The similarly sized facility incorporated tilt-up concrete construction and sustainable strategies such as sunshades and white roofing membrane to reduce heat gain.
