Construction firm Robins & Morton and Ocala Health broke ground on West Marion Community Hospital’s inpatient rehabilitation unit on March 24.
The nearly 44,500-square-foot, 36-bed expansion will become the hospital’s first inpatient rehabilitation unit. The unit will also feature a gym for physical and occupational therapy, as well as its own dedicated dining area. It is slated for completion in late 2022.
“As inpatient rehabilitation needs grow in Ocala, we’re thrilled to be able to deliver this much-needed expansion,” Robins & Morton Vice President Glenn Myers said. “We’ve been working at West Marion Community Hospital since 2014 and we’re proud to continue building on this campus.”
Robins & Morton is serving as the general contractor and Gould Turner Group is the architect.
