    Weatherford Rehabilitation Hospital to Break Ground on May 29

    Maxim Management Group, a regional leader in specialty health care management, will begin construction on the first free-standing inpatient rehabilitation hospital in Weatherford. The 27,000 square foot hospital will add 26 beds to the network of inpatient rehabilitation facilities throughout Texas and Louisiana owned and operated by Maxim Management Group. Maxim is pleased to work with architects at Corgan, contractors at Imperial Construction and lenders at Green Bank on this project.

    “We are excited to be bringing a state-of-the-art inpatient rehabilitation hospital to Weatherford,” said Mark J. Harris, chief executive officer of Maxim Management Group. “Patients had to travel to Fort Worth for this type of care in the past so there was a great need for a local facility like this, especially with the growing population of seniors.”

    Weatherford Rehabilitation Hospital will offer patients comprehensive medical rehabilitation services, including physical, occupational, respiratory and speech therapy. Patients will also be able to receive care for a variety of conditions, such as a stroke, brain injury, spinal cord injury, amputation, and many other debilitating disorders. The independent hospital will offer private rooms, a dining area, a large therapy gym and 24-hour nursing care.

    “We welcome Weatherford Rehabilitation Hospital to the growing Weatherford medical district, and are excited about their ability to serve the needs of Parker County residents with local access,” said David Orcutt, chief executive officer of Weatherford Regional Medical Center.

    The hospital will have 120 people on staff lead by a physiatrist. Interviews for positions with Weatherford Rehabilitation Hospital will begin this summer. For more information or to apply, please contact resumes@weatherfordrehab.com.

    Weatherford Rehabilitation Hospital is located on the former site of the Parker County American Legion at 703 Eureka Street in Weatherford, Texas. It is less than half a mile from the Weatherford Regional Medical Center and approximately 29 miles from Fort Worth, Texas. The hospital will be Joint Commission (JCAHO) accredited and is expected to open in the first quarter of 2015.

    Maxim Management Group of Texas is led by an executive team with extensive personal experience in all phases of the specialty hospital post-acute care market. The company utilizes a business model built around owning and operating inpatient physical rehabilitation hospitals in vibrant, rural populations and focuses its services on the growing senior population.

    Maxim plans to expand its network of inpatient rehabilitation hospitals primarily through strategic acquisitions and new construction in select rural markets regionally, including Texas and Louisiana.
