ClearSky Health, an established rehabilitative healthcare provider, today announced plans to build an inpatient rehabilitation hospital in Avondale, Ariz. The hospital is expected to create about 100 new healthcare-related jobs.
ClearSky Rehabilitation Hospital of Avondale will be a 30-bed facility located at 109th Avenue and West McDowell Road in Avondale, Az. It will provide specialized rehabilitative care to individuals living with disabling injuries or illnesses such as strokes, brain injuries, hip fractures, spinal injuries, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, or other debilitating conditions such as COVID-19.
The planned 43,000-square-foot medical facility will feature private rooms, a rehabilitative gym, dining room, and an activity of daily living space. Groundbreaking for the facility is planned for April, with construction expected to take about 13 months.
“We are excited to have ClearSky Health join our Avondale business community,” says Avondale Economic Development Director Ken Chapa. “Their facility, which chose to locate within our nationally recognized healthcare corridor, will provide top tier, post-acute care for patients throughout the valley. We are honored that they have chosen Avondale as their first location in Arizona.”
“Avondale’s Economic Development team was essential in the location selection,” says Darby Brockette, CEO of ClearSky Health. “With their support and the guidance of community and medical leadership, we learned of the area’s unmet need for inpatient rehabilitative services. We feel with our proven expertise and knowledge, we can make a positive impact on the community by providing services that individuals would otherwise have to leave the area to receive.”
ClearSky Rehabilitation Hospital of Avondale is expected to treat about 650 patients annually. Physician-led rehabilitative services will include physical, occupational, and speech therapy; rehabilitative nursing; case management; respiratory therapy, dietary services, and other specialized care.
