PeaceHealth and Lifepoint Rehabilitation, a business unit of Lifepoint Health, have entered into a joint venture partnership to build and operate a new inpatient rehabilitation facility in Springfield, Oregon.  

With a total of 50 private rooms, the 67,000-square-foot facility will nearly double patient capacity of the existing PeaceHealth acute rehabilitation unit, currently managed by Lifepoint Rehabilitation, located at PeaceHealth Sacred Heart Medical Center, University District. The new facility will also feature a 12-bed acquired brain injury unit, a first for the area. It will be located on the PeaceHealth Sacred Heart Medical Center at RiverBend annex campus. 

The new rehabilitation facility will provide intensive nursing, physical, occupational and speech pathology services for adults recovering from conditions such as stroke, neurological disease, brain or spinal cord injury, and other debilitating illnesses or injuries. This expansion will allow PeaceHealth and Lifepoint Rehabilitation to increase access to inpatient rehabilitation services in the region, addressing a significant community need. Lifepoint Rehabilitation will manage the day-to-day operations of the facility.  

Pending customary regulatory approvals, construction for the new inpatient rehabilitation facility is expected to begin in the spring of 2025 with an expected opening in 2026.  

Upon completion, the PeaceHealth rehabilitation facility will join Lifepoint Rehabilitation’s growing network of more than 30 inpatient rehabilitation facilities across the country.
