Private hospital chain Clearsky Health has announced that it will build a new 30-bed rehabilitative medical center in Waxahachie, Texas.
To be called ClearSky Rehabilitation Hospital of Waxahachie, the new medical center will provide specialized, rehabilitative care for those who suffer from disabling injuries or illnesses such as strokes, brain injuries, hip fractures, spinal injuries, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, or other medically-complex conditions such as COVID-19.
Not just a treatment center but an in-patient hospital, Clearsky estimates that it will treat about 650 patients each year at the new Waxahachie location and will offer patients a minimum of 15 hours of therapy per week.
ClearSky Health collaborates with healthcare facilities in bringing rehabilitative care to communities. The new facility will feature private rooms, a rehabilitative gym, a dining room, and common area for socializing.
The hospital chain emphasizes its comprehensive stroke rehabilitation program, which includes review of 228 evidence-based recommendations from the American Stroke Association. the center will also staff nursing and therapy personnel who are specifically trained in stroke rehabilitation practices and will review every recommendation and apply the ones that fit the needs of each patient.
Clearsky’s interdisciplinary team of healthcare providers includes a physician and healthcare professionals trained in physical, occupational, and speech therapy along with rehabilitative nursing, case management, respiratory therapy, dietary services, and other specialized services.
The groundbreaking will take place in the coming months, with the opening expected Winter 2022. The new location should employ approximately 100 people.

The new entity operates hospitals in Weatherford, Flower Mound, and Rio Rancho, and will also build a facility in Mansfield. The for-profit hospital chain is headquartered in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
