“We are excited for the opportunity to extend our services to Katy and serve even more patients requiring rehabilitative care.”

Additional facilities available at the hospital include a therapy gym, rehabilitation technologies, in-house pharmacy and courtyard.

The project will create approximately 90 full-time jobs to the community. Construction is scheduled to commence this year, while the patient care will start next year.
