Our rehab hospital opened in its new location on March 5, with a new name: UF Health Rehab Hospital. Through an affiliation with Select Medical, it is located close to other UF Health hospitals at 2708 SW Archer Road.
It is a collaboration between UF Health and Select Medical and offers 50 beds, which is 10 more than at the original location off Northwest 39th Avenue.
Select Medical President and CEO David Chernow and UF Health Shands CEO Ed Jimenez offered remarks at a ribbon-cutting ceremony, followed by tours of the new facility, in February.
Select Medical operates the new facility, which serves patients throughout North Central Florida who require care to treat stroke, spinal cord injury, brain injury, amputation and neurological disorders, among other conditions.
Jimenez said, “We are excited about these next steps in our collaboration with Select Medical to improve post-acute and rehabilitation care for people throughout North Florida.”
