Encompass Health Corp announces its plans to build a freestanding, 60-bed inpatient rehabilitation hospital in Libertyville, Illinois, to be named Encompass Health Rehabilitation Hospital of Libertyville.

Complementing local acute care services, the hospital, which is expected to open in the spring of 2022, will care for patients recovering from illnesses and injuries including strokes and other neurological disorders, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputations and complex orthopedic conditions.

The hospital will provide physical, occupational and speech therapies as well as 24-hour nursing care that aim to restore functional ability and quality of life, Encompass Health Corp notes in a media release.

“We are excited to expand our services in Illinois through this state-of-the-art hospital, which will bring much-needed intensive rehabilitation services to Lake County and the surrounding area,” says Troy DeDecker, president of Encompass Health’s central region.

“Through this hospital, we will be able to provide more patients with customized care that helps them reach their highest levels of independence and gives them the confidence they need to move forward in their lives.” 

The hospital will feature a therapy gym with advanced rehabilitation technologies, an activities of daily living suite, cafeteria and dining room, pharmacy and therapy courtyard.  

Once built, Encompass Health Rehabilitation Hospital of Libertyville will become part of Encompass Health’s national network of inpatient rehabilitation hospitals and home health and hospice agencies. For more information, visit Encompass Health.
