UCI Health and Kindred Rehabilitation Services have signed a definitive agreement to construct and operate a 52-bed, 68,000-square-foot inpatient rehabilitation hospital in Orange County.  

The UCI Health Rehabilitation Hospital will serve the growing clinical needs of the Orange County region. KRS will manage the hospital’s day-to-day operations, and patients will receive care provided by UCI Health physicians and clinical staff, all in private rooms and state-of-the-art rehabilitation facilities. The partners expect construction on the approximately $80 million inpatient hospital to begin by December 2022 and begin admitting patients in late 2025.

The rehabilitation hospital will serve patients across the region, including eligible patients treated at UCI Medical Center in Orange, which features Orange County’s only Level I trauma center and regional burn center, in addition to a large orthopedic and neurological surgery service and a comprehensive stroke center. The hospital will also serve patients from the new UCI Health – Irvine medical complex, under construction at the UCI campus. The facility, expected to open in 2025, features a 144-bed acute care hospital and will specialize in orthopedic and neurological surgery. 

The initiative expands the UCI Health inpatient rehabilitation capacity from its existing 14 rehabilitation beds at UCI Medical Center in Orange and locates them between the two UCI medical complexes.
