Kindred Healthcare and Anderson Healthcare have announced receipt of  Certificate of Need approval from Illinois Health Facilities and Services Review Board for a 34-bed acute rehabilitation hospital in the US state.

Claimed to be the first freestanding rehabilitation hospital in the central and southern regions of Illinois, the facility will be constructed on Anderson Healthcare’s Goshen Campus in Edwardsville.

Anderson Rehabilitation Hospital is a joint venture of Kindred and Anderson Healthcare.

Groundbreaking on the campus for the new hospital is expected in the summer of 2020.

Kindred will be responsible for daily operations of Anderson Rehabilitation Hospital, while Anderson Hospital will offer medical support services.

Once operational, the new hospital will provide care for adults recovering from conditions due to a loss of function or disability such as brain injury, spinal cord injury, neurological disorders, musculoskeletal conditions and amputation.

The hospital will feature all private rooms. Around 12 beds will be specially alloted to brain/stroke injury care.

The facility is expected to replace a 20-bed hospital-based acute rehabilitation unit at Anderson Hospital.

Kindred has been managing Anderson Hospital since 2004.

Kindred Healthcare division Kindred Rehabilitation Services COO Russ Bailey said: “We look forward to expanding our existing relationship with Anderson Healthcare to build and operate this facility, to address the growing need for inpatient rehabilitation services in the state.

“We are proud to create another quality-focused partnership and expect this collaborative effort to deliver the kind of excellent patient care that helps our inpatient rehabilitation business outperform peers in key clinical measures.”

Anderson Healthcare president and CEO Keith A Page said: “Throughout its history, Anderson Healthcare has responded to the needs of Madison County and Southern Illinois residents. Each new service and every expansion has been in direct response to community needs.

“Our quality services are evident not only by our accreditations, certifications and designations but by our continued growth. Together with Kindred, we are proud to offer this level of care to patients requiring high-level rehabilitation.”
