On the heels of its recent announcement of a $3.75 billion investment into a campus expansion that includes ensuring the campus meets the state's new earthquake safety mandates, UC Davis Health is expanding further with another construction project.
UC Davis Health took a step forward on a $60 million hospital that will bring a new level of rehabilitation care to Sacramento-area residents with traumatic brain, burn or orthopedic injuries, according to The Sacramento Bee. The facility is scheduled to open in the second quarter of 2023. It will be managed and largely funded by Kindred Healthcare, a company that specializes in operating such facilities and partners with more than 300 hospital-based programs around the nation.
The UCD Rehabilitation Hospital will start with 40 private rooms but will be licensed to accommodate 52. The facility will be 55,000 square feet and sits on a site that will become a technology and innovation campus planned by the University of California, Davis, and the city of Sacramento.
