Construction underway for new Encompass Health Rehabilitation Hospital of Tustin
New specialized hospital expected to open in late 2020
TUSTIN, Calif., June 25, 2019 – Encompass Health Rehabilitation Hospital of Tustin is getting a new home in late 2020. Construction started this month at 15120 Kensington Park Drive in Tustin on a new inpatient rehabilitation hospital that will replace the current hospital located at 14851 Yorba Street in Tustin.
The 69,500-square-foot freestanding hospital will feature 65 private patient rooms, a spacious therapy gym, an on-site pharmacy, an activities of daily living suite, dayrooms and advanced technologies. Services are expected to transfer to the new location in late 2020.
“We are excited to be building a new home for our patients and employees,” said Diana Hanyak, CEO of Encompass Health Tustin. “This hospital will be a place where many people will experience firsts again and regain confidence after a major illness or injury. It’s an honor to provide such a meaningful service to people in our community.”
Encompass Health Tustin, which has served the Tustin community since 1996, provides comprehensive inpatient rehabilitation services for patients recovering from debilitating illnesses and injuries including stroke, spinal cord injury, brain injury, amputation and complex orthopedic conditions. Patients at Encompass Health Tustin receive three hours of intensive physical, occupational and speech therapy in addition to around-the-clock nursing and frequent physician visits. While it provides a hospital-level of care, there will not be emergency medical services on site.
The hospital is the only freestanding, acute-level rehabilitation hospital in Orange County and holds a special Disease-Specific Care Certification from The Joint Commission for its stroke rehabilitation program.
MJ Harris is the contactor for the project, and Boulder Associates oversaw the design of the hospital.
