Select Medical Announces Plans to Build a New Critical Illness Recovery and Inpatient Rehabilitation Hospital to Serve Greater Orlando
MECHANICSURG, PA – March 20, 2023 – Select Medical today announced plans to build a new specialty hospital to include critical illness recovery and inpatient rehabilitative care in the Dr. Phillips suburb of Orlando, Florida. The state-of-the-art, 63-bed facility will be located at 7450 Sand Lake Commons Blvd. in Orlando.
“We have seen a tremendous growing need for post-ICU and inpatient rehabilitative care across the Central Florida region,” said Tom Mullin, executive vice president of hospital operations at Select Medical. “Florida’s population grew faster than anywhere else in the country in 2022, and more than 20 percent of the state’s population is over 65. With that comes a demand for access to world-class post-acute care to help patients heal and recover from chronic, critical illness or catastrophic injury so they may return to quality of life and back to community.”
Select Medical currently operates two critical illness recovery hospitals (licensed as long-term acute care) in Orlando as well as 11 additional critical illness recovery hospitals and three inpatient rehabilitation hospitals and units throughout the state of Florida.
Expected to open in late 2024, the new Select Specialty Hospitalwill serve patients recovering from chronic, medically-complex conditions and debilitating illnesses as well as injuries including stroke and other neurological disorders, brain injury, spinal cord injury, amputation and other orthopedic conditions.
