Work could begin later this spring on a 43,000 square foot hospital on the northeast side of Avondale, Arizona.
The Austin, Texas-based ClearSky Health says it wants to build what will be an inpatient rehabilitation facility at the intersection of West McDowell Road and 109th Avenue.
The new hospital, which is expected to cost $25 million to build, will have enough space to house 30 beds, as well as an activity space, dining room, and rehabilitative gymnasium.
The new hospital will particularly focus on rehabilitative treatment for patients with brain and spinal injuries, not to mention multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease.
Founded in 2019, ClearSky is regarded as a premiere rehabilitative healthcare provider and currently has nearly half a dozen hospitals up and running in Louisiana, New Mexico, and Texas.
In a statement, Darby Brockette, chief executive officer of ClearSky, noted the Avondale area’s “unmet need for inpatient rehabilitative services,” and said the new hospital would provide services that “individuals would otherwise have to leave the area to receive.”
Construction of the new hospital is expected to take around 13 months, which would give it an early summer 2022 completion date.
ClearSky opened a 33,000 square foot, 25-bed facility in Rio Rancho, New Mexico last fall, as well as a 56,300 square foot facility housing 29 beds in the town of Flower Mound in northern Texas.
