PeaceHealth and Lifepoint Rehabilitation announced that they have entered into a joint venture partnership to build and operate a new inpatient rehabilitation facility in Springfield, Oregon.
This expansion will allow PeaceHealth and Lifepoint Rehabilitation to increase access to inpatient rehabilitation services in the region, addressing a significant community need. Lifepoint Rehabilitation will manage the day-to-day operations of the facility.
The new rehabilitation facility will provide intensive nursing, physical, occupational and speech pathology services for adults recovering from conditions such as stroke, neurological disease, brain or spinal cord injury, and other debilitating illnesses or injuries.
With a total of 50 private rooms, the 67,000-square-foot facility will nearly double patient capacity of the existing PeaceHealth acute rehabilitation unit. The new facility will also feature a 12-bed brain injury unit, a first for the area. It will be located on the PeaceHealth Sacred Heart Medical Centre at RiverBend Annex campus.
