Date:9/6/2009

ATSU helps celebrate the grand opening of the new rehabilitation hospital with partner HealthSouth.

Mesa, Ariz. (PRWEB) September 6, 2009 -- More than 200 community members and health professionals gathered at HealthSouth on August 18 to welcome the rehabilitation hospital to the East Valley and celebrate the beginning of the hospital's relationship with A.T. Still University (http://www.atsu.edu/ashs/).

Representatives from Arizona's physicians community, East Valley leadership, non-profit organizations, insurance companies, and adult living centers toured the hospital; enjoyed a buffet created by HealthSouth's own chef, Ted Reiley; and watched the official cutting of the ribbon.

Key speakers included Scott Smith, the mayor of Mesa; Timothy Poore, HealthSouth CEO; Jay Grinney, HealthSouth corporate president and CEO; and Craig Phelps, D.O., FAOASM, A.T. Still University (ATSU) provost. Each spoke to the attendees regarding the 40-bed inpatient rehabilitation hospital and the great potential for the Arizona Health & Technology Park partners to work together and serve the community.

"East Valley citizens will benefit from this new community asset," Dr. Phelps said. "ATSU looks forward to working with HealthSouth on new, innovative models to educate healthcare professionals and provide the highest quality healthcare to patients."

The 47,500-square-foot rehabilitation hospital neighboring ATSU is a new addition to Mesa's "Power Road Corridor." The hospital will create approximately 130 new jobs and is the only free standing rehabilitation hospital in the East Valley.

"The addition of this hospital will allow us to provide high-quality and cost-effective inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation services to more patients in Mesa and the surrounding communities," said Poore.

"The event was a wonderful success. It was a great opportunity to bring together everyone who will be touched by our new hospital," says Julie Barth, OTR/L, MBA, director of marketing operations and admissions at HealthSouth East Valley. "Special new relationships will be with A.T. Still University and the new YMCA on campus."
