The Rehabilitation Institute of Town & Country has made some rapid advances with IMPACT Strategies, Inc. at the helm as the construction manager. With the foresight of utilizing prefabricated exterior wall panels, the entire perimeter wall system was erected in nine working days allowing for the roof to be completed in two weeks following the wall erection process. The building will soon be fully secure and weather- tight.
Under the design guidance of Gresham Smith, the one-story building will contain 47,000 square feet of acute rehabilitation care with forty private inpatient rooms, a kitchen, dining room, exercise room, pharmacy, therapy gym, dialysis room, and therapy courtyard.
This rehab hospital will be an expansion of the current strategic partnership between Encompass Health Corp. and BJC HealthCare, which already includes three hospitals known as The Rehabilitation Institute of St. Louis, The Rehabilitation Institute of Southern Illinois and The Rehabilitation Institute of St. Louis located in St. Peters.
IMPACT Strategies previously completed the facility in 2021 for Encompass Health and BJC HealthCare located Shiloh, Ill. The new hospital in Town and Country is expected to begin accepting patients in 2024 as they will be offering comprehensive rehabilitation services including physical, occupational and speech therapies.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Encompass Health and BJC HealthCare on our second rehab hospital for them,” said Mark Hinrichs, president of IMPACT Strategies. “Leveraging innovation through prefabrication and modularization technologies has provided great efficiencies in our construction schedule along with enhanced quality control and on-site safety of our trades men and women.”
