HealthSouth Announces Plans to Build New Hospital in Texas

State-of-the-art hospital brings rehabilitation services to northwest Houston

BIRMINGHAM, Ala., — HealthSouth Corporation recently announced plans to begin construction of a new 40-bed inpatient rehabilitation hospital in the Cypress area of northwest Houston in the fourth quarter. In connection with such plans, HealthSouth has signed a contract to purchase a 6-acre tract of land from an affiliate of Caldwell Companies, based in Houston. The land is located on the northeast corner of Highway 290 and FM 1960 in Houston. 

“We have been privileged to serve patients in Texas since 1990 and look forward to offering HealthSouth’s high-quality services closer to home for residents of northwest Houston,” said Frank Brown, president of HealthSouth’s Texas region.  “This new facility will be a state-of-the-art rehabilitation hospital that can be expanded to 60 beds and will offer comprehensive inpatient and outpatient programs.  Our plans for the 48,000 square-foot hospital include all private rooms, a spacious on-site therapy gym and cutting-edge rehabilitation technologies.”

This announcement follows HealthSouth’s recent acquisition of Sugar Land Rehabilitation Hospital in southwest Houston, Texas, and Desert Canyon Rehabilitation Hospital in Las Vegas, Nev., as well as its opening of a new 40-bed hospital in Loudoun County, Va., and a new 25-bed hospital in Bristol, Va.

HealthSouth currently operates 13 rehabilitation hospitals throughout Texas and one long-term acute care hospital located in Houston, Texas.
