Adolfson & Peterson Construction (AP), a top national construction management firm and general contractor, and Reunion Rehabilitation Hospitals, a system of state-of-the-art inpatient rehabilitation hospitals, today announced the groundbreaking of a new rehab hospital in Peoria with support from America Development & Investments LLC (ADI), a leading healthcare real estate developer based in Dallas, Texas.

Located at 13451 N. 94th Dr., the hospital will offer inpatient rehabilitation care for people with debilitating illnesses and injuries such as stroke and brain injury, as well as other complex neurological and orthopedic conditions.

“We’re pleased to break ground on our second project with Reunion Rehabilitation Hospitals and ADI in the Phoenix metro area,” said Robert Cortazzo, regional president for AP Southwest. “AP’s repeat work on Reunion hospitals in Arizona, Colorado and Texas has enabled us to share best practices during the preconstruction and construction process to mitigate supply chain and labor challenges. We’re excited to do our part in bringing a vital facility to the community of Peoria.”

A recent U.S. Census Bureau report revealed Phoenix as the fastest-growing big city from 2010 and 2020, adding more than 163,000 residents during that time. This growth has spilled over to Phoenix’s West Valley suburbs, including Peoria, which makes the community a prime location for a modern rehabilitation hospital.

Designed by Callaway Architecture, the three-story, custom-built hospital will sit on 3.71 acres, encompass 49,128 square feet and feature 40 patient beds (20-bed nursing units on each floor), two high-tech physical therapy gyms, administrative offices, and dining and kitchen spaces, as well as various back-of-the-house support spaces. AP will also manage a complete interior build-out as well as all associated site work and utility services.

“We are ecstatic to have our second project starting with Reunion Rehabilitation Hospitals and ADI in Arizona,” said Mark Daniels, president for Callaway Architecture. “We are also particularly pleased to once again be collaborating with Adolfson & Peterson Construction and look forward to repeating the success of our first collaborative effort on the Reunion Phoenix facility.”

Slated to open in the fourth quarter of 2022, Reunion Rehabilitation Hospital Peoria will provide comprehensive inpatient physical-medicine rehabilitation therapies using results-oriented, individualized plans of care for patients in the area. The new hospital will ultimately provide patients with best-in-class care provided by the finest caregivers in a unique, community-centric hospital environment.

Reunion Rehabilitation Hospital Peoria will also create an opportunity for Phoenix-area residents to build fulfilling careers by joining a team of excellent clinicians and support staff, including specialty-trained physical medicine and rehabilitation physicians.

The hospital is one in a series of inpatient rehabilitation facilities that Reunion plans to develop across the country. In addition to the new Peoria hospital, ADI is developing a 51,000-square-foot hospital in Phoenix; a 47,000+ square-foot hospital in Englewood, Colorado; and a 55,617-square-foot hospital in Plano, Texas; and a 50,800-square-foot hospital in Arlington, Texas.
