Dallas, Texas-based Everest Rehabilitation Hospitals announces the construction of its seventh $24M physical rehabilitation hospital location in the state of Florida.

With identical 36-bed, physical rehabilitation hospitals previously announced in S. Orlando (Kissimmee), E. Lakeland/Winter Haven, W. Orlando (Ocoee), St. Pete, Viera, Port Charlotte and now in Ocala, Florida, Everest is clearly confident on their continual pursuit to provide high quality physical rehabilitation hospital services for the citizens of Florida.

Everest’s free standing physical rehabilitation hospital will be constructed on 5.1 acres of land in Ocala, Fla. Everest Rehabilitation Hospital operates and develops identical, modern, 40,000-square-foot, 36-bed, single-story acute care physical rehabilitation hospitals. With each of the 36 private rooms complete with contemporary art, 65-inch flat screen TVs and a private bathroom, staying at Everest’s hospitals is more compared to a luxury hotel versus a typical hospital setting. Everest Rehabilitation Hospitals are also predesigned to be able to add an additional 17 private beds should the market dictate the need for expansion.

Everest’s physical rehabilitation hospital in Ocala, Florida will create about 120 jobs in the community.

“We look forward to the opportunity to serve Ocala, Silver Springs, Bellview, Silver Springs Shores, Morriston and many other Marion County communities. We firmly believe that patients thrive exponentially when their environment and their level of care far exceed their expectations. 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.” Jay Quintana, Everest Rehabilitation’s CEO said. “We provide one to one physical therapy, five to seven days a week, daily medical visits by rehabilitation physicians and a strong 24-hour day nurse to patient ratio that contributes to optimal outcomes and the highest quality of care.”

The hospital includes spacious, technologically advanced equipped 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, in-house dialysis, and an in-house pharmacy. Everest encourages the importance of the support system surrounding the patients as well. Included in the facility are several family gathering areas, an extra-large dining hall and an outdoor patio. The hospital 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.

Everest Rehabilitation Hospital Ocala 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.
