The medical rehabilitation hospital, located at 10903 W. McDowell Road, serves patients with disabling injuries or illnesses such as strokes, brain injuries, hip fractures, spinal injuries, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, or other medically-complex conditions like COVID-19.
A doctor of osteopathic medicine, Morales most recently served as an attending physician at a medical rehabilitation hospital in Glendale. He also has worked at a medical rehabilitation hospital in Phoenix and at urgent care centers in West Palm Beach, Florida.
In his role at ClearSky Avondale, Morales will lead the interdisciplinary healthcare team in providing patient services that include physical, occupational, and speech therapy; rehabilitative nursing; case management; respiratory therapy; dietary services; and other specialized care.
“I’m looking forward to working with the hospital’s healthcare team to provide a higher level of specialized rehabilitation to our patients,” Morales shared in a press release. “Our goal is to work together with patients and their families to maximize recoveries so they can return home quickly with independence to the activities that they enjoy.”
Morales earned a bachelor’s degree in human psychology from the University of Arizona in Tucson, and a doctorate of osteopathic medicine at Midwestern University, Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine, in Glendale.
