Capital Regional Medical Center in Tallahassee is preparing for a $23 million expansion of its main campus rehabilitation center, with contractors to receive bid packages within weeks.
The hospital says work on the 27,000 sq. ft. facility will start early next year and be completed by 2022. It will include 20 20 private patient rooms, a fitness center and dining room,” The Tallahassee Democrat reports.
Broadcaster WFSU quoted regional CEO Alan Keesee said the new rehab center will connect to to the main hospital via enclosed breezeway.
“It’ll have its own gym, a nice dining area, entrance for family members and visitors to stop by and spend time with loved ones. So it’s an exciting, beautiful open-air concept that we’re happy to have on-campus here at the hospital.”
“We’re excited to have local contractors getting some bid packages in the next month or so,” he said. “And then we anticipate starting construction in February of 2021and then opening in 2022.”
