Patricia Neal Rehab West expected opening late ’22

Encompass Health and Covenant Health recently entered into a joint venture to own and operate Covenant Health’s Patricia Neal Rehabilitation Center, which includes a new 51-bed, freestanding inpatient rehabilitation hospital being built on Covenant Health’s Fort Sanders West campus along Kingston Pike just west of Pellissippi Parkway. It is expected to be completed sometime later this year. The new rehab hospital will offer physical, occupational and speech therapies and 24-hour nursing care aiming to restore functional ability and quality of life, according to a Covenant Health press release.
