Saint Thomas, Kindred Get CON Nod


 

In late August, the Health Services and Development Agency of the State of Tennessee granted Certificate of Need approval for construction of the Saint Thomas Rehabilitation Hospital, a 40-bed freestanding inpatient rehab facility on the health system's midtown campus. The project is a joint venture between Ascension Saint Thomas and Louisville-based Kindred Healthcare.

The new facility will serve nine counties and a population of 1.9 million, including more than 298,000 senior citizens. According to the CON application, filed in late June, the proposed 98,000-square-foot facility and parking garage is anticipated to cost an estimated $48 million and will replace the current 24-bed acute rehabilitation facility located at Saint Thomas Midtown Hospital.

Plans call for a two-story facility built above a two-story parking garage that includes all private rooms and bathrooms and a designated wing specifically for traumatic brain injury patients. The main therapy suite is expected to include a therapy gym, cooking therapy area, an activities of daily living (ADL) therapy suite, private therapy rooms and a courtyard.

"Ascension Saint Thomas has always been committed to providing high-quality inpatient rehabilitation services designed to help patients with acute physical limitations progress toward independent living," said Fahad Tahir, president and CEO, Saint Thomas Midtown and West Hospitals. "This specialized collaboration with Kindred Healthcare will improve the lives of Middle Tennesseans and enhance clinical integration across the acute care and rehabilitation treatment settings."
