Description: When the new HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital of Western Massachusetts opened its doors in December 2013, it marked an important step in the revitalization efforts of the historic mill town of Ludlow, Massachusetts. The 74,000-square-foot hospital is also the recipient of a LEED HC Gold certification. The hospital was one of the largest to be recently built in Ludlow, and the 53-bed facility contains a shell space that can be expanded to 70 beds in the future. HealthSouth is one of many revitalization efforts for historic Ludlow Mills, which will also include a balance of retail, office, light-industrial and residential development.
