Encompass Health Corp announces it plans to build a freestanding, 50-bed inpatient rehabilitation hospital in Daytona Beach, Florida.
Complementing local acute care services, the future hospital will serve patients recovering from debilitating illnesses and injuries, including strokes and other neurological disorders, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputations and complex orthopedic conditions. In addition to 24‑hour nursing care, this hospital will offer physical, occupational and speech therapies to restore functional ability and quality of life. Care will be provided by highly specialized nurses, therapists and physicians.
The hospital will feature all private patient rooms, a spacious therapy gym with advanced rehabilitation technologies and an activities of daily living suite, cafeteria, pharmacy and therapy courtyard.
“We are excited to expand our rehabilitation services on Florida’s Atlantic coast to provide much-needed rehabilitative services to individuals in the Daytona Beach area,” said Lori Bedard, president of Encompass Health’s Southeast region. “We remain committed to making a difference in the communities we serve by improving access to high-quality, individualized rehabilitative care, and this new hospital will allow even more residents to receive specialized care close to home.”
Encompass Health currently has 19 inpatient rehabilitation hospitals in Florida and has announced plans to open an additional seven hospitals in the state over the next several years.
