Mercy enters partnership to build rehab hospital

St. Louis-based Mercy and Lifepoint Rehabilitation entered into a joint venture agreement with Mercy Hospital South for the new Mercy Rehabilitation Hospital South facility in that city.

The $37 million, two-story, 50-bed acute rehabilitation hospital will be run by Lifepoint Rehabilitation, according to an Oct. 20 news release. The hospital will provide care for adults recovering from neurological disease, brain or spinal cord injuries and other debilitating illnesses and injuries.

The new rehab hospital will replace existing Mercy Rehabilitation services located within Mercy Hospital. The new hospital will have two units: one for brian injury patients and the other serving general acute rehabilitation needs.
