Everest Rehabilitation Hospitals, LLC, today announced its plans to invest over $24M in another physical rehabilitation hospital and this time to serve the needs of the ever‐growing Auburndale, Lakeland and Winterhaven, FL region now that the Florida Legislature passed HB21 to repeal certain CON (Certificate of Need) requirements in the state.

The level of care in our acute physical rehabilitation hospital setting cannot be provided at other levels of care such as skilled nursing facilities

Everest’s free standing physical rehabilitation hospital will be constructed on 6.10 acres of land on the highly visible and convenient northwest corner of Highway 92 and Loop 570 (Polk Parkway East) in Auburndale, FL (E. Lakeland). Everest Rehabilitation Hospital operates and develops identical, modern, 40,000 square foot, 36-bed, single story comprehensive physical rehabilitation hospitals. Everest’s hospitals are much more like a luxury hotel versus a typical hospital setting. Everest Rehabilitation Hospitals are predesigned to be able to add an additional 17 private beds should the market dictate the need for expansion.

The hospital includes spacious, technologically advanced equipped inpatient and outpatient physical therapy gyms, a large outdoor mobility courtyard for therapeutic use, aqua therapy, a fully furnished life skills training apartment with kitchen and bathroom, several family gathering areas, an extra-large dining hall and patio, in-house dialysis, and an in-house pharmacy. The hospital will serve patients recovering from stroke, brain injury, neurological conditions, trauma, spinal cord injury, speech impediments, amputation, pulmonary disease, orthopedic injury, COVID-19, and other medically complex conditions.

Everest’s multimillion-dollar rehabilitation hospital in Auburndale (East Lakeland and Winterhaven), Florida will create over 100 jobs and provide for an $8 million-dollar a year payroll to the community. “We are extremely excited to be able to serve the Auburndale, Lakeland, Winter Haven, Wahneta, Lake Wales, Haines City, Bartow, Lake Alfred, Fort Meade, Highland City and Polk City communities. We firmly believe that patients thrive exponentially when their environment and their level of care far exceed their expectations. The level of care in our acute rehabilitation hospital setting cannot be provided at other levels of care such as skilled nursing facilities (SNF). The average length of stay at a comprehensive inpatient rehabilitation hospital is one-third of a typical stay at a skilled nursing facility.” Jay Quintana, Everest Rehabilitation’s CEO said. “We provide one to one physical therapy, five to seven days a week, daily medical visits by rehabilitation physicians and a strong 24 hour a day nurse to patient ratio that contributes to optimal outcomes and the highest quality of care.”

Everest Rehabilitation Hospital Auburndale will feature a comprehensive and interdisciplinary physician-led experienced team of rehabilitation therapists focused on increasing patient strength and endurance and improving quality of life in a modern, state of the art setting.
