Kindred Healthcare, Inc. and Atlantic Health System announced plans to construct and operate a new 38-bed inpatient rehabilitation hospital in northern New Jersey.
The new facility will offer all private rooms, supporting both enhanced clinical efficiency and elevated patient experience with targeted clinical programs including neurological, spine, trauma and complex conditions. The growth in trauma cases and the increased level of acuity of patients served by Atlantic Health System has resulted in more patients requiring inpatient rehabilitation services in order to improve their functional status prior to returning home.
The combination of Kindred’s expertise and a modern, state-of-the-art facility will allow Atlantic Health System to maximize its ability to serve a growing population of patients with critical needs. Subject to several regulatory and other approvals, Kindred and Atlantic Health System expect the rehabilitation facility to open by the fourth quarter of 2018.
The new hospital will enhance Kindred’s existing services in New Jersey, which include three long-term acute care (“LTAC”) hospitals and hospice services.
