New Iberia Manor South Breaks Ground on New Unit

New Iberia, LA – New Iberia Manor South breaks ground on a new addition on Tuesday, June 13th from 3:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.  The addition, expected to be completed by early 2018, will include a rapid recovery unit for short-term rehabilitation patients.

Ryan Richard, Administrator, says, “We [New Iberia Manor South] look forward to breaking ground on our new unit.  This will allow our short-term patients to receive the same quality rehab services provided to all our residents, while also maintaining the comforts of home.  We’re especially excited about the newly updated rehabilitation gymnasium and separate entrance.”

The $3.5 million expansion aims to add approximately 19,000 square feet to the facility, located at 600 Bayard Street in New Iberia.  The addition will offer short-term residents 23 private rooms, a rehabilitation gym, a dining room and a separate entrance. New Iberia Manor South was built in 1962 with new wings added in the late 70s and late 90s.  Renovations were also completed in 2013 and 2016.
