St. Joseph Regional Medical Center will begin construction of a new rehabilitation unit on the sixth floor of its hospital. The $6 million project is scheduled to be finished by mid-June 2023. Once complete, the acute rehabilitation unit will provide the area’s only inpatient rehabilitation and will help adults who have experienced a loss of function or disability due to injury or illness.
The 10-bed acute rehabilitation unit will include a gym with equipment used in rehabilitative therapies and feature all private rooms for patients recovering from conditions that include stroke, brain injury, spinal cord injury, orthopedic injury, neurological conditions, amputation and trauma. The new unit will provide the intensive, interdisciplinary clinical and rehabilitation services necessary for improved function and independence.
The rehabilitation unit will provide services to St. Joseph’s patients and patients from other healthcare providers in the region.
