Medvest Selected To Develop Rehab Hospital In Montana
Capital Growth Medvest has been selected to develop a new 34-bed inpatient rehabilitation hospital in Billings, Montana. The new facility is partnership among Billings Clinic, St. Vincent Healthcare and Kindred LifePoint Healthcare, Inc. (“Kindred”) (NYSE:KND).
The facility, The Rehabilitation Hospital of Montana, will serve patients who require rehabilitation following a stroke, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury or similar medical problems. The hospital will provide nursing care, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech pathology, and related services to post-acute patients. The new 42,000-square-foot hospital will be the second facility Medvest has developed for Kindred, which is following an earlier rehabilitation hospital currently under construction in Tacoma, Washington.
“This collaboration will provide our community and the region greater access to new, high-quality rehabilitation services close to home,” said Randall Gibb, M.D., Billings Clinic Interim Chief Executive Officer. “This will strengthen the system of providing rehabilitation services already integrated within our organizations and we know this new partnership will benefit people across the region.”
The hospital is being designed by Earl Swensson Associates, Inc, which is consistently recognized as one of the top healthcare design firms by Modern Healthcare.
