BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Hoar Construction participated in a groundbreaking ceremony recently for Highlands Health & Rehab, a replacement facility in Scottsboro, Alabama. Highlands Health & Rehab is being developed by Jackson County Health Care Authority. Hoar Construction will serve as the project’s general contractor.
The North wing of the 50-bed Facility containing 11 private units is dedicated to short-term rehab, e.g., physical, occupational and speech therapy. The two other wings are dedicated to traditional long-term care and contain rooms sized for future semi-private occupancy. A total of 45 private and five semi-private units are indicated on the plans. The facility is designed with a central dining area, large multi-purpose room, administrative offices and a central nurses’ station with requisite support spaces, including clean and soiled utility rooms, janitor room, nourishment room, pharmacy/med preparation and a wheelchair/stretcher storage room.
“Hoar Construction is proud to be part of the Highlands Health & Rehab project and excited to participate in the groundbreaking activities for this new development,” said Nick Cotumaccio, director of operations. “We have put a great deal of effort into the preconstruction process working with Highlands Health & Rehab and the consultants to ensure this project, when complete, will offer patients the best possible facilities to provide quality care.”
