Plans for a new in-patient rehabilitation hospital to be located in the San Tan Village area are making their way through the Town of Gilbert.
The project, called the Dignity Health Mercy Gilbert Rehabilitation Hospital, will be developed by the joint venture of Kindred Healthcare, LLC and Dignity Health, and was announced back in August 2020.
The hospital will be located on approximately 4.52 acres just north of the NWC of Santan Village Parkway and Coronado Road, just south of the Doubletree by Hilton hotel. The two-story building will total approximately 53.3KSF and provide 40 beds.
“The rehabilitation hospital will offer acute physical rehabilitation services on an inpatient basis for post-surgery and/or trauma injuries,” according to the project staff report. “Patients served will typically be ages 18 and older suffering from stroke, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, complex neurological disorders, orthopedic conditions, multiple trauma, amputation and other injuries or disorders.”
