HealthSouth Corporation today announced plans to begin construction of a new 40-bed inpatient rehabilitation hospital in Pearland, Texas, in the fourth quarter of 2016 on a newly acquired 5.46-acre tract of land.
The land is located on the development of The Reserve at Shadow Creek Ranch at the intersection of Business Center Drive and Medical Center Drive in Pearland.
The approximately 49,000-square-foot hospital is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2017 and will provide comprehensive, inpatient physical rehabilitation to patients who have experienced stroke, trauma, brain injury, complex orthopedic conditions as well as other major illnesses or injuries.
"We have been privileged to serve patients in Texas since 1990 and look forward to offering HealthSouth's high-quality services for residents of Pearland and the greater southeast Houston area," said Frank Brown, president of HealthSouth's southwest region. "This new facility will be a state-of-the-art rehabilitation hospital that can be expanded to 80 beds and will offer comprehensive inpatient physical rehabilitation programs. Our plans for the hospital include all private rooms, a spacious on-site therapy gym and cutting-edge rehabilitation technologies."
HealthSouth currently operates 23 inpatient rehabilitation hospitals throughout Texas.
