CROWN POINT -

Community Healthcare System has announced plans for a 129,000-square-foot stroke and rehabilitation center in Crown Point. The health system will invest an estimated $40 million into the facility, which is expected to create 100 full-time jobs.

Community says the center will include inpatient rehabilitation treatment as well as physician practices, immediate care and outpatient services such as physical, occupational and speech therapy. A women's diagnostic center will also be located on the second floor of the four-story building.

The third and fourth floors of the facility will provide specific therapies for complex stroke, traumatic brain injury, neurological conditions and spinal cord treatments. The health system says the center will be the only freestanding dedicated rehabilitation center in Northwest Indiana.

"Each of our hospitals are accredited Primary Stroke Centers and serve as a starting point for stroke patients," said Donald Fesko, chief executive officer of Community. "Studies suggest that for many post-stroke patients, intensive inpatient rehabilitation treatment at an inpatient rehabilitation facility may be the best choice, resulting in enhanced functional outcomes with a shorter length of stay and higher discharge rate. This same high standard of care also applies to patients recovering from neurological conditions and joint replacements and others who need care in a rehabilitative setting."

Community Healthcare System is planning to open the facility in spring 2019.
