New agreement brings new rehabilitation hospital to Greenwood

For release on August 01, 2017

Community Health Network, Kindred Healthcare partner to provide convenient access, exceptional rehabilitative care to south, central residents

Indianapolis—Community Health Network and Kindred Healthcare agreed to a joint venture to operate a 40-bed inpatient rehabilitation hospital in Greenwood.

The newly-named Community Rehabilitation Hospital South will be modeled after an existing facility on the Indianapolis’ northeast side. Community Rehabilitation Hospital South will provide post-acute care with convenient access for patients with a broad range of diagnoses related to stroke, brain injury, spinal cord injury, neuromuscular diseases, orthopedics, amputations and related disorders.

Maintained in partnership with Kindred Healthcare, a national leader in the development and operation of rehabilitation hospitals, the south facility, located at 607 Greenwood Springs Drive, will feature specialized clinical programs including a dedicated brain injury unit for patients suffering from trauma-related neurological conditions.

“We are thrilled to once again partner with Kindred to provide exceptional rehabilitative care to those patients who need it,” said Jason Fahrlander, chief operating officer for Community Health Network. “This new hospital allows us to further our goal of providing convenient access to specialized post-acute care to help improve the lives of individuals in this region.”

This will be the third joint venture between Kindred and Community, joining Community Rehabilitation Hospital on the Community Hospital North campus and Community Howard Specialty Hospital in Kokomo, Indiana.

“Community Health Network has been a great partner and we are pleased that we can work with them to enhance their rehabilitation services,” said Jason Zachariah, President of Kindred Rehabilitation Services, a division of Kindred. “This quality-focused collaboration with a leading healthcare system will deliver the kind of excellent care that improves patients’ lives and enables our inpatient rehabilitation business to continuously outperform peers in key clinical measures.”

Remodeling of the current facility is underway. The new Community Rehabilitation Hospital South is expected to open in early 2018.
