With the Florida Legislature’s elimination of the Certificate of Need requirements for physical rehabilitation hospitals in the state, Everest Rehabilitation Hospitals LLC announces its plans to construct its fourth physical rehabilitation hospital in Florida and second in the Orlando area.

The $24M project will be built on 5.1 acres of land in Ocoee, Fla. Previous hospitals were built in Kissimmee, East Lakeland/Winter Haven, and West Palm Beach.

Each identical, modern, 40,000-square-foot, 36-bed, single-story comprehensive physical rehabilitation hospital is predesigned to be able to add an additional 17 private beds should the market dictate the need for expansion, a media release from Everest Rehabilitation Hospitals LLC explains.

“The level of care in our acute rehabilitation hospital setting cannot be provided at other levels of care such as skilled nursing facilities (SNF). The average length of stay at a comprehensive inpatient rehabilitation hospital is one-third of a typical stay at a skilled nursing facility. We provide one to one physical therapy, five to seven days a week, daily medical visits by rehabilitation physicians and a strong 24 hour a day nurse to patient ratio that contributes to optimal outcomes and the highest quality of care.”

— Jay Quintana, CEO Everest Rehabilitation Hospitals LLC

The hospital will be equipped with inpatient and outpatient physical therapy gyms, a large outdoor mobility courtyard for therapeutic use, aqua therapy, a fully furnished life skills training apartment with kitchen and bathroom, several family gathering areas, an extra-large dining hall and patio, in-house dialysis, and an in-house pharmacy.

In addition, it will feature a comprehensive and interdisciplinary physician-led experienced team of rehabilitation therapists focused on increasing patient strength and endurance and improving quality of life in a modern, state-of-the-art setting.

It will serve patients recovering from stroke, brain injury, neurological conditions, trauma, spinal cord injury, speech impediments, amputation, pulmonary disease, orthopedic injury, COVID-19, and other medically complex conditions, per the release.
