Construction firm Robins & Morton broke ground on a new rehabilitation facility for the University of Louisville Health on Nov. 15 in Louisville, Kentucky.
The ceremony was live-streamed to the community in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The future 40-bed, 55,000-square-foot freestanding rehabilitation hospital in northeastern Jefferson County will be a partnership between the University of Louisville Health and Kindred Healthcare. Capital Growth Medvest is the owner/developer. It will stand two stories and feature all private rooms.
Once complete in early 2023, the hospital will offer specialty programs for neurological, stroke, brain injury, spinal cord injury and amputation patients. There will be large interdisciplinary gyms, transitional living apartments and exterior courtyard. This hospital will also have a secured acquired brain injury unit with private dining and therapy gym.
“We’re pleased to support our client in building their first rehabilitation hospital in Louisville,” Robins & Morton Senior Vice President Jim Poole said. “We appreciate the trust they’ve placed in us to deliver this landmark facility to the Louisville community.”
