Description

Knoxville Rehabilitation Hospital - Knoxville, TN

Kindred Healthcare has broken ground with Tennova Healthcare and the University of Tennessee Medical Center to open the soon to be brand new 57-bed inpatient rehabilitation hospital in Knoxville, Tennessee and plans to open in 2021. Knoxville Rehabilitation Hospital will provide care for patients across an 11-county region with impairments resulting from a traumatic medical situation, such as stroke, serious spinal cord and brain injury, neurologic illness, major multiple trauma, and orthopedic conditions with complex or profound impairments. Although the majority of patients are expected to be seniors, Knoxville Rehabilitation Hospital will be equipped to also treat younger patients recovering from traumatic incidents.

We bring proven rehabilitation management and services expertise that benefits our partners as well as the nearly 50,000 IRF patients we see each year who seek to recover and get home quickly from any of a number of conditions, including stroke, brain injury, spinal cord injury, orthopedic injury, neurological conditions, amputation and trauma.
