Encompass Health to Construct Hospital in Henry
Encompass Health Corp. (NYSE: EHC) today announced plans to build a 50-bed inpatient rehabilitation hospital in Henry County, Georgia. The hospital is expected to start providing services in the third quarter of 2021.
The hospital will be built near the corner of Patrick Henry Parkway and Holloway Road in Henry County. It will provide comprehensive physical rehabilitative services to patients overcoming a variety of debilitating illnesses and injuries such as stroke and other neurological disorders, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputations and complex orthopedic conditions.
The services will complement those provided by local healthcare leaders such as Piedmont Henry Hospital, a 236-bed hospital that offers cutting-edge technology and first-class care in cardiovascular care, orthopedics, surgery, critical care, women’s health, emergency services, radiation oncology and diagnostic imaging.
"With strong support from the community and leadership at Piedmont Henry Hospital, this state-of-the-art hospital will bring much-needed physical rehabilitation services to residents of Henry County and the surrounding area," said Linda Wilder, president of Encompass Health’s southeast region. "Through our connected and patient-centered approach, we will deliver services that greatly benefit patients and their families during their recovery journey and transition back to the community."
The hospital will feature a large therapy gym, advanced rehabilitation technologies, an activities of daily living suite, cafeteria and dining room, pharmacy and courtyard.
Encompass Health, one of the nation’s largest providers of inpatient rehabilitation hospitals, currently operates three inpatient rehabilitation hospitals in addition to 22 home health and four hospice locations in Georgia. The Company also recently announced its plans to build an additional inpatient rehabilitation hospital in Forsyth County, which will bring the total number of Encompass Health physical rehabilitation hospitals in Georgia to five.
