HealthSouth Purchases Land In Modesto, California, And Announces Plans For New Hospital

BIRMINGHAM, Ala., April 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- HealthSouth Corporation (NYSE: HLS) today announced it has acquired land and plans to construct a new approximately 54,000-square foot inpatient rehabilitation hospital in Modesto, Calif. In connection with these plans, HealthSouth purchased 5.5 acres of land located at the northeast corner of Coffee Road and Mable Avenue in Modesto.

"We have been privileged to serve patients in California since 1995 at our other locations and look forward to offering high-quality services closer to home for Stanislaus County residents," said Jerry Gray, president of HealthSouth's west region. "This new, state-of-the-art hospital will ensure residents have appropriate and reasonable access to the latest rehabilitative treatment and technology in a hospital setting."

The proposed 50-bed hospital will provide inpatient rehabilitative care including specialized rehabilitation programs using advanced technology to help patients recover from a major illness, injury or surgery. Design work on the hospital is currently underway, and the Company will be working closely with California's Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD) to begin construction as quickly as possible. Construction is expected to begin in the third quarter of 2014, and the hospital should be operational by the fourth quarter of 2015. The development is expected to represent a $28 million investment in the community and, once fully operational, approximately 100 full-time jobs.

This will be HealthSouth's third hospital in California, joining HealthSouth Bakersfield Rehabilitation Hospital and HealthSouth Tustin Rehabilitation Hospital.
