Encompass Health plans to build a freestanding, 40-bed inpatient rehabilitation hospital in a suburb of Waco, Texas. The new hospital will be located in Robinson, Texas at the intersection of Texas State Highway Loop 340 and Texas Highway 77.
“We are excited to bring our rehabilitation services in the greater Waco area through this new, state-of-the-art hospital,” said Frank Brown, president of Encompass Health’s southwest region. “By delivering a customized and patient-centered approach to care, Encompass Health provides its patients with the therapy, education and confidence they need to maximize their recovery.”
Complementing local acute care services, the hospital, which is expected to open in the summer of 2021, will care for patients recovering from a variety of debilitating illnesses and injuries including strokes and other neurological disorders, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputations and complex orthopedic conditions. It will offer 24-hour nursing care as well as physical, occupational and speech therapies that aim to restore functional ability and quality of life.
It will become part of Encompass Health’s national network of inpatient rehabilitation hospitals and home health and hospice agencies. Encompass Health, one of the nation’s largest providers of integrative healthcare services, currently operates 24 inpatient rehabilitation hospitals in addition to 52 home health and 11 hospice locations in Texas. The Company previously announced future openings of inpatient rehabilitation hospitals in markets across the country.
