Banner Health, Select Medical break ground on new rehabilitation hospital
PHOENIX — Residents in Peoria are soon to have another option when it comes to rehabilitation.
Banner Health and Select Medical have partnered up to bring more physical therapy and rehabilitation centers around the Valley, breaking ground on its Peoria rehab facility Thursday.
The Banner Rehabilitation Hospital – West will be a 56-bed hospital that will serve patients in need of care resulting from “stroke, spinal cord injury, brain injury, amputation and neurological disorders, among other conditions.”
It’s the second hospital to be built as part of the partnership between the two entities.
The first hospital under the agreement is currently under construction in Phoenix.
The anticipation to complete the two hospitals, as well as another one planned for construction, is set for later this year.
The partnership between the two combines operations of nearly 40 physical therapy centers and four acute inpatient rehabilitation hospitals.
Banner Health owns and operates 28 acute-care hospitals in Arizona, California, Colorado, Nebraska, Nevada and Wyoming.
