Encompass Health Corp. announced it has purchased land located at the northwest corner of Silver Lane and Highway 207 in St. Augustine, Florida for the future development of a 40-bed inpatient rehabilitation hospital to serve patients recovering from debilitating illnesses and injuries.

Encompass Health notes the planned hospital, once opened, will become part of Encompass Health’s national network of inpatient rehabilitation hospitals and home health and hospice agencies. The Company’s Florida footprint currently includes 12 inpatient rehabilitation hospitals, a hospital under construction in north Tampa, a planned hospital in Pensacola and 19 home health locations. A construction timeline for the hospital has not yet been established.

“This new, state-of-the-art hospital will help meet a growing need for intensive physical rehabilitative services in the St. Augustine area,” said Linda Wilder, president of Encompass Health’s southeast region. “Provided in a hospital setting, Encompass Health’s services are tailored to meet each patient’s complex needs and help them regain the strength and confidence they need to return to their community at their highest level of independence.”

Services at Encompass Health inpatient rehabilitation hospitals complement those provided by local acute care hospitals. Offering 24-hour nursing care, physical, occupational and speech therapies, and a multi–specialty medical staff, the hospitals treat patients recovering from strokes and other neurological disorders, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputations and complex orthopedic conditions.
