Baptist plans $43 million rehab hospital

Baptist Healthcare has big plans for Jeffersontown, Kentucky. The Louisville-based health care system is seeking permission for a $43.4 rehabilitation hospital near Blankenbaker Parkway and Bluegrass Parkway in Louisville.

The 47,000 square foot inpatient facility with 40 beds is a joint venture with Alabama-based Encompass Health. The state must approve Baptist’s certificate of need before the project can move forward.

Features and amenities for the rehab hospital include private rooms, a dialysis suite, a therapy gym and an outdoor therapy area. Construction costs have been estimated at $20.4 million. No schedule has been released for the project.
