Community Health Network plans to move its inpatient rehabilitation facility from its east-side hospital to a new $23 million facility in the Castleton neighborhood, the Indianapolis-based hospital system announced Monday.
The new facility, which will include 60 beds in 63,000 square feet of space, is scheduled to open in the second quarter of 2013. Construction on or near the Community Hospital North campus will begin next year.
Community is partnering with Nashville-based Centerre Healthcare on the new facility, which will provide care for neurological, stroke and traumatic injury patients.
Community’s inpatient rehabilitation program, called Hook Rehabilitation, will move its services and staff to the new facility when it opens and close the 42-bed unit located in Community Hospital East.
“This new rehabilitation hospital will allow us to build upon the clinical outcomes of Hook by providing the most advanced treatment possible for patients, in a facility dedicated to their specific needs,” Mike Blanchet, chief operations executive for Community Health, said in a prepared statement.
