The realty company and construction firm working on the new Baptist Memorial Rehabilitation Hospital at the corner of Wolf River Boulevard and Germantown Parkway hosted a lunch to celebrate the “topping out” of the new facility. Topping out celebrations are held when the last beam is placed at the top of a building.
Construction of the facility, which began last October, is expected to be complete this October. The 49-bed, freestanding hospital will provide a wide range of clinical services for patients recovering from complex neurological conditions, strokes, brain and spinal cord injuries, complex orthopedic injuries, amputations and other conditions. The new hospital will have all private rooms and include specialty features such as a dedicated stroke unit, an Activity of Daily Living space, a mobility courtyard and an expansive therapy gym.
