Encompass Health has announced its plan to construct a 60-bed inpatient rehabilitation hospital in Houston, Texas, US.

Located at 3000 Yellowstone Boulevard, the hospital will help patients recovering from debilitating illnesses and injuries, including strokes and other neurological disorders, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputations and complex orthopaedic conditions and will complement local acute care services.

Apart from 24–hour nursing care, this hospital will provide physical, occupational and speech therapies to reinstate functional ability as well as quality of life.

Care will be offered by specialised nurses, therapists and physicians, claimed the company.

The hospital will have all private patient rooms, a therapy gym with rehabilitation technologies and activities of daily living suite, cafeteria, dining room, pharmacy and therapy courtyard.

Encompass Health’s Southwest region president Frank Brown said: “We are excited to expand and grow our rehabilitation services in Houston, Texas.

“Through the new inpatient rehabilitation hospital, we will provide our patients with coordinated and connected care that meets them where they are in their healthcare journeys and makes a positive difference in their lives.”

Once completed, , the hospital will become a part of Encompass Health’s national network of inpatient rehabilitation hospitals and home health and hospice agencies.

Encompass Health’s Texas footprint includes 26 inpatient rehabilitation hospitals, a future hospital in Amarillo,; one hospital under construction in Prosper, 51 home health locations, and 15 hospice locations.
