ScionHealth has signed an agreement with Upshot Capital Advisors to lease land in Orlando to build and operate a 53-bed long-term acute-care hospital featuring a rehabilitation unit.
The three-story, 70,000-square-foot facility is expected to offer 25 long-term acute care beds and a rehabilitation unit with 28 beds. The new hospital will be ScionHealth's second specialty hospital in Orlando, complementing the 64-bed hospital now under construction at the Upshot Medical Center at Mills Park location. ScionHealth operates 10 additional specialty hospitals in Florida under the Kindred Hospitals brand.
Construction on the new location is expected to start in 2023, and the new facility is expected to begin operations in the first half of 2025.
The Orlando hospital is the second new-construction growth project to be announced by ScionHealth since it launched in December 2021.
