On Oct. 22, 2020, a groundbreaking ceremony was held for the future home of Encompass Health Rehabilitation Hospital of North Alabama, which is located at the SW corner of Hwy 72 and Moores Mill Road in Huntsville, Alabama.

Event remarks were provided at the event by Doug Beverly, CEO of Encompass Health Rehabilitation Hospital of North Alabama; Rex Reynolds, Alabama State Representative for District 21; and Mark Tarr, President & CEO, Encompass Health Corp.

“This space may be dirt for now; but in the spring of 2022, this will be a place where patients will discover hope and regain independence,” said Beverly. “Our hospital has proudly served the Huntsville community for more than 30 years, and we’ve been honored to treat more than 45,000 patients during that time. We look forward to this next chapter and continuing to support our community with high-quality, rehabilitative services for many years to come.”
