PeaceHealth, a not-for-profit Catholic health system, and Lifepoint Health’s business unit Lifepoint Rehabilitation have secured regulatory clearance to establish a new inpatient rehabilitation hospital in Springfield, Oregon, US. 

The two organisations obtained approval for the project from the Oregon Health Authority through a certificate of need.  

The new 67,000ft² hospital will be located on International Way in Oregon, adjacent to PeaceHealth’s RiverBend Annex.  

It will have an inpatient bed capacity of 42, with room for future expansion.  

Construction of the hospital is expected to commence in October this year, with its launch set for January 2026. 

The new facility will be majority-owned by PeaceHealth via a joint venture board of directors with Lifepoint Rehabilitation, which was formed last year.

Once open, it will offer intensive nursing services, along with physical, occupational, and speech therapies for adults recovering from various serious conditions, such as brain or spinal cord injury, stroke, and neurological diseases. 

The aim is to meet the region’s ‘significant community need’ for inpatient rehabilitation services and enable patients to receive care closer to home. 

PeaceHealth stated that the new facility will be the first in the region to feature a brain injury unit and will offer expanded capacity over PeaceHealth and Lifepoint Rehabilitation’s existing 27-bed RiverBend facility. 

In addition, it will offer upgraded equipment and expanded therapy options, including exoskeleton equipment, a mock apartment, a car to practice entering and exiting, and a kitchen, as well as an outdoor therapy area. 

The hospital will become part of Lifepoint Rehabilitation’s network, which includes more than 40 inpatient rehabilitation facilities across the US. Lifepoint will manage the daily operations of the facility. 

PeaceHealth Sacred Heart Medical Center at RiverBend chief administrative officer Alicia Beymer said: “We are very excited to bring new and expanded inpatient rehabilitation services to Lane County. Our current rehabilitation unit inside RiverBend is rated one of the best on the West Coast and this new standalone facility will take that already outstanding care to another level.”
