Rehab hospital breaks ground in Weatherford

Frisco-based Maxim Management Group has started construction on a 27,000-square-foot physical rehabilitation hospital in Weatherford. 
The freestanding inpatient physical rehabilitation hospital will be built on the former site of the Parker County American Legion, next door to Weatherford Regional Medical Center.
The Weatherford location will consist of 26 beds and will employ a staff of up to 80 medical professionals led by a physiatrist, a medical doctor who has completed training in the medical specialty of physical medicine and rehabilitation.
The hospital will be Joint Commission accredited.
Construction is expected to be completed by the first quarter of 2014.
“We are looking forward to being a collaborative part of the medical community and enhancing the continuum of care for patients in the greater Weatherford area,” said Mark Harris, CEO of Maxim Management Group. “We are especially pleased by the reception from the Weatherford medical community and their enthusiasm to have local access to a high-quality inpatient physical rehabilitation facility.”
Maxim Management Group is working on the project with Dennis Clayton, executive director for the city of Weatherford’s Economic Development Authority and chairman of the Weatherford Regional Medical Center Board of Trustees.
“Maxim’s participation with our local medical center and physician networks will enhance Weatherford as a regional health care center, create skilled jobs, fill a health care service gap for our citizens and add to our local tax base,” Clayton said.
Weatherford Rehabilitation Hospital is designed by Corgan Associates, a national designer for health care facilities, with offices in Dallas.
Maxim Management Group owns and operates inpatient physical rehabilitation hospitals and focuses its services to the growing senior population. The company plans to expand its network of hospitals primarily through strategic acquisitions and new construction in select rural markets regionally, including Texas and Louisiana.
