PAM Health plans to build a freestanding 42-bed physical medicine and rehabilitation hospital in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. The new hospital will be PAM Health's first inpatient rehabilitation hospital in the state.
The new hospital will serve patients recovering from debilitating illnesses and injuries, including traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries, strokes and other neurological disorders, amputations, and other orthopedic and post-surgical conditions. Construction of the hospital is expected to begin in early 2023, with opening slated for 2024.
Once completed, the Mechanicsburg hospital will be the fourth PAM Health hospital in Pennsylvania, in addition to three long-term acute care specialty hospitals in Wilkes-Barre, Pittsburgh and Beaver.
