Adolfson & Peterson Construction (AP), a top national construction management firm and general contractor, and Reunion Rehabilitation Hospitals (RRH), a system of state-of-the-art inpatient rehabilitation hospitals and America Development & Investments LLC (ADI), a leading healthcare real estate developer based in Dallas, topped out Reunion Rehabilitation Hospital Peoria (RRH Peoria).

The three-story facility will include 40 patient beds, two high-tech physical therapy gyms, administrative offices, dining and kitchen spaces, and other service and support areas. Once completed, the hospital will offer inpatient rehabilitation care for people with debilitating illnesses and injuries such as stroke and brain injury, as well as other complex neurological and orthopedic conditions.

“Following our work on RRH’s Phoenix location, we’re proud to reach this milestone and move one step closer to extending these vital rehabilitation services to Peoria,” said Rob Cortazzo, regional president for AP Southwest. “Our strong partnership with RRH throughout the Southwest and Gulf States regions has allowed us to streamline the preconstruction and construction phases. Peoria is one of many locations we are building with RRH, and we look forward to partnering on additional projects that will expand their services and serve more communities in Arizona.”


The 49,128-square-foot custom-built hospital at 13451 N. 94th Dr., on 3.71 acres, was designed by Callaway Architecture and developed by America Development & Investments.

Scheduled to open in the fourth quarter of 2022, RRH Peoria will provide comprehensive inpatient physical-medicine rehabilitation therapies using results-oriented, individualized plans of care for patients in the area.

“We are excited to continue our partnership with AP to establish another state-of-the-art Reunion Rehabilitation facility for Arizona patients leaving acute hospital settings. We believe this hospital will set a new standard for the treatment of patients with complex medical needs, allowing them to heal and recover in a comfortable, soothing environment,” said Anis Sabeti, Reunion Board Member. “We are committed to leading the way toward best-in-class, individualized patient care in a competitive and niche market and we are humbled by this opportunity to build long-lasting relationships in the Peoria community.”

The hospital is one in a series of inpatient rehabilitation facilities that RRH plans to develop across the country. In addition to the new Peoria hospital, Adolfson & Peterson and ADI are developing a more than 47,000 square-foot hospital in Englewood, Colorado; a 51,000-square-foot hospital in Phoenix; a 55,617-square-foot hospital in Plano, Texas; and a 50,800-square-foot hospital in Arlington, Texas.
