Introduction:

HealthSouth Corporation and Mount Carmel Health System have signed an agreement to build a new 60-bed inpatient rehabilitation hospital in Westerville, Ohio.

Features:

The 60-bed hospital will provide specialized rehabilitative care to patients who have experienced stroke, trauma, brain and orthopedic injuries or other major illnesses or injuries.

Construction on the 60,000-square-foot hospital is expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2015 and to be completed by the first quarter of 2017.
