CINCINNATI -- TriHealth aims to expand its presence in the Evanston community with a new inpatient hospital.
TriHealth and Select Medical announced Monday that they are planning a partnership to build and operate a 60-bed, inpatient hospital in Keystone Park near I-71 and Dana Avenue.
Officials said they hope to open the facility by late 2015. The company expects to employ 180 staff.
Once completed, TriHealth plans to move its acute rehab services at Bethesda North Hospital and Good Samaritan Hospital to the new Evanston facility.
Select Medical will manage the two units until the new hospital is open and then serve as managing partner at the new location.
The new hospital will provide treatment for people suffering from spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, stroke, amputation, neurological disorders and musculoskeletal and orthopedic conditions.
Officials said Select Medical's Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation will provide support for new clinical program development, specialized services, enhanced access to research and clinical education.
