DALLAS and ORLANDO, June 3, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Today, Dallas Texas based Everest Rehabilitation Hospitals announced the construction of its fourth $24M physical rehabilitation hospital location in Florida.
With identical 36-bed, physical rehabilitation hospitals previously announced in S. Orlando (Kissimmee), E. Lakeland/Winter Haven, W. Palm Beach and now a second location in Orlando (Ocoee), Florida, Everest is clearly bullish on providing 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 at Highway 438 (E. Silver Star Rd.) and Clarke Rd. in Ocoee, FL (Orlando). Everest Rehabilitation Hospital operates and develops identical, modern, 40,000 square foot, 36-bed, single story comprehensive physical rehabilitation hospitals. Everest’s hospitals are much more like a luxury hotel versus a typical hospital setting. Everest Rehabilitation Hospitals are 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 Ocoee (Orlando), Florida will create over 120 jobs in the community. “We are extremely excited to be able to serve Ocoee, Winter Garden, Windermere, Doctor Phillips, Oakland, Orlo Vista, Gotha, Pine Hills, Apopka, Lake Butler and many other Orlando regional 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 a 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, several family gathering areas, an extra-large dining hall and patio, in-house dialysis, and an in-house pharmacy. 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 Ocoee 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.
