Saint Luke's Plans To Build 60-Bed Rehabilitation Hospital

Saint Luke’s Health System says it plans to build a 60-bed rehabilitation hospital in the Kansas City area in partnership with Nashville, Tenn.-based Centerre Healthcare Corp.

The hospital network says it has not selected a site for the proposed 60,000-square-foot facility, which is expected to open in 2016.

The rehab hospital will offer programs for stroke, brain and spinal cord injuries, amputations and other major medical conditions, Saint Luke’s said in a news release.

The hospital will be Centerre’s 14th inpatient rehab hospital in the United States, according to the release.

Saint Luke’s operates 10 hospitals in Missouri and Kansas as well as primary and specialty care practices.
