The Valley continues to be a hot spot for high-end rehabs of all sorts.

Is it rehab, or a resort?

It’s hard to tell at some of the Valley’s newest rehabilitation facilities. The Arizona desert has long been a hot spot for luxury rehabs in places like Tucson and Sedona, but now, high-end recovery retreats of all kinds are opening across Phoenix.

Many of these rehabs focus on treating addictions, like Scottsdale Recovery Center, where the programs include horseback riding, hiking, massage and yoga. Some new luxury rehabs, like addiction treatment center Fountain Hills Recovery, hone their programs for people who work as executives, actors, athletes and first responders.

The newest facility coming to the Valley, Reunion Rehabilitation Hospital, is scheduled to open in late 2021 near 16th and McKinley streets in Central Phoenix. It will provide state-of-the-art, resort-like inpatient care for people recovering from strokes, brain injuries and other debilitating neurological conditions. Plans for the three-story, 51,000-square-foot facility include private rooms, two gyms with cutting-edge technology and outdoor therapy areas.

“We believe the new hospital will provide greater access to state-of-the-art inpatient care, in addition to bringing new health care-related jobs to the community,” Jeffrey Jones, a partner in Reunion Rehabilitation Hospital Phoenix, said in a press release.

Jones says Reunion’s parent company, Dallas-based America Development & Investment, picked Phoenix after conducting market research showing a need for a luxury inpatient physical rehabilitation facility here: “Central Phoenix and Downtown Phoenix have become a landing spot for multiple health care and bioscience facilities, and we wanted to continue that trend.”
