Banner Health, Select Medical break ground for new rehab hospital
New rehabilitation hospital to be located in Peoria

PEORIA, Ariz. (April 22, 2019) — Banner Health and Select Medical will host a groundbreaking event for the new Banner Rehabilitation Hospital - West, a 56-bed medical rehabilitation hospital. The event will be from 1 to 1:30 p.m. Thursday, April 25, at 12740 N. Plaza Del Rio Blvd.

In January 2018, Banner Health and Select Medical announced a joint venture partnership which would combine operations of more than 38 physical therapy centers in Arizona and four acute inpatient rehabilitation hospitals located in Phoenix. The partnership agreement also includes the construction of three new acute inpatient rehabilitation hospitals in the metro Phoenix, West Valley and East Valley areas. These new hospitals will serve the needs of patients requiring care resulting from stroke, spinal cord injury, brain injury, amputation and neurological disorders, among other conditions.

The groundbreaking ceremony will mark the second hospital to be built under the agreement. The groundbreaking for the first hospital, located in Phoenix, was in January. That hospital is currently under construction.
