Yuma Rehabilitation Hospital to Serve More Patients Through Hospital Expansion
YUMA, Ariz. - Yuma Rehabilitation Hospital announces an expansion to its existing 41-bed inpatient rehabilitation hospital at 901 W 24th street, resulting in 51 beds. The project is expected to be completed in January 2016.
Yuma Rehabilitation Hospital is a joint venture partnership between Yuma Regional Medical Center and HealthSouth Corporation, one of the nation’s largest owners and operators of inpatient rehabilitation hospitals. The 12,000-square-foot expansion will include 10 new semi-private rooms, dining room and gym expansions and an additional generator with enclosure.
The 10 additional semi-private rooms will allow the hospital to provide enhanced post-acute rehabilitation services to even more patients within the community, southwestern Arizona, and surrounding areas like El Centro and Brawley, California, who are recovering from conditions such as stroke and other neurological disorders, brain injury, spinal cord injury and complex orthopedic conditions.
Yuma Rehabilitation Hospital holds Disease-Specific Care Certifications recognized by The Joint Commission for its excellence in stroke rehabilitation and hip fracture rehabilitation.
Boulder Associates Architects of Denver, Colorado, and M.J. Harris Construction Services of Birmingham, Alabama, are managing the expansion project.
