EVANSVILLE -

Evansville-based Deaconess Health System has announced plans to construct a new inpatient rehabilitation hospital. The facility, being developed in collaboration with Encompass Health Corp. (NYSE: EHC), will replace the current HealthSouth Deaconess Rehabilitation Hospital.

Deaconess says the new hospital will continue to operate as a joint venture between it and Encompass Health, formerly known as HealthSouth Corp. Financial details of the investment were not disclosed.

The hospital will feature 80 patient rooms, an on-site therapy gym and an in-house pharmacy. Construction is expected to begin this spring and be complete by the fall of 2019.

"The replacement hospital for HealthSouth Deaconess will feature all private patient rooms, provide more privacy and comfort, and allow for future expansion to accommodate the needs of a growing population," said Shawn McCoy, chief executive officer of Deaconess. "With a location close to Deaconess Gateway, our soon-to-open Orthopedic and Neuroscience Hospital, and I-69, this new hospital will also improve access for patient transfers and visitors." 

HealthSouth Deaconess will also continue to manage the 18-bed satellite hospital located within the Deaconess Midtown Hospital in Evansville.
