Encompass Health has a location called HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital, which is now at Elizabeth Place’s campus on Dayton’s west side and will move to the new location by Miami Valley Hospital’s campus.

The Dayton Daily News was the first to report the project, which was announced in March.

Services at the new hospital are expected to begin in spring 2020 at the corner of South Main and West Apple streets, by the Miami Valley Hospital campus.

The freestanding inpatient rehabilitation hospital will have a therapy gym, an in-house pharmacy, a dialysis suite for patients needing dialysis services during their stay, a courtyard, a dining room and day room areas.
