The $18.9-million conversion of Community Rehabilitation Hospital South in Greenwood, Indiana is complete. Community Health Network and Kindred Healthcare formed a joint venture to convert Kindred Hospital Indianapolis South, a pre-existing 60-bed long-term acute care hospital, into a 44-bed inpatient rehabilitation hospital. PMB was chosen to develop and own the project.
PMB acquired the existing LTAC from Kindred and began construction. The project will play a critical role in the continuum of care by providing a progressive healthcare facility solely devoted to patient recovery. Ultimately, these services will reduce readmissions to local acute care hospitals and decrease the total cost of care. It offers intensive, patient-focused, specialized rehabilitation services for stroke, brain injury, spinal cord injury and amputation. Newly added features of the facility include private rooms, large interdisciplinary gyms, a dialysis suite, transitional living apartments, a therapeutic courtyard with golf, basketball and varied surfaces and specialty rehabilitation programs.
The three-story, 54,000-square-foot, 44-bed freestanding rehabilitation hospital provides convenient, accessible and rehabilitation care to residents in Greenwood and South Indianapolis. Hereford Dooley Architects served as architect for the project and Doster Construction provided general contracting services.
