    Santé Breaks Ground On Post-Hospitalization Care Facility in Tucson

    Monday, June 01, 2015

    SCOTTSDALE (June 1, 2015) — Santé will officially break ground on its first Tucson location at a ground-breaking ceremony on Friday, June 5, at 10 a.m. Speakers will include Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild, U.S. Rep. Martha McSally and Chair of the Pima County Board of Supervisors Sharon Bronson.

    Santé will break ground this summer on the 68,000-square-foot transitional rehabilitation center located at 2040 N. Wilmot, which will be the company's fifth Arizona location.

    "The presence of Santé of Tucson will deepen our healthcare assets," said Joe Snell, president and CEO of Tucson Regional Economic Opportunities. "Successful economic development requires close teamwork and cooperation from all corners of our region and state, and we worked closely with the City of Tucson and Pima County to successfully bring Santé to Tucson."

    The two-story facility will create more than 130 new jobs and will house 87 patient units and 89 beds. The $24 million center will open in summer 2016 and will include a privately secured short-term memory care wing with a dining area and rehabilitation gym.

    Founded in 2008, Santé offers skilled nursing, home health care, transitional rehabilitation services and in-home hospice services. "At Santé we focus of the total well-being of the patient, not just their ailment. We also know healthcare decisions involve and affect the entire family, and we're here to be a part of the support system and the healing journey," said C. Mark Hansen, president and CEO of Santé. "We look forward to serving Tucson in 2016."
