Brooks Rehabilitation is developing an additional inpatient rehabilitation hospital in Jacksonville, Fla., to meet demands of a growing population. The new 60-bed hospital will be built on its existing 115-acre campus in the Bartram Park area of Jacksonville.

The provider’s original 160-bed rehabilitation hospital provides care for more than 3,000 patients per year. Brooks also manages a 40-bed inpatient rehabilitation hospital in partnership with Halifax Health in Daytona Beach, Fla.

The new hospital on the Bartram campus will also care for patients after a brain injury, stroke, spinal cord injury or other disabling illness or injury. Adding a rehabilitation hospital provides a continuum of post-acute services in one location, making it a convenient option. Brooks anticipates construction to be completed in two years. Gresham Smith was chosen as the designer. The contractor has not yet been selected.
