The new rehab hospital is expected to create more than 100 jobs, Homsi said.
The hospital will focus on increasing strength and endurance and improving quality of life for patients who no longer need full-fledged hospital care but are not ready to return to their homes following an injury, illness or surgical procedure. That includes, but is not limited to, stroke, brain injury, neurological disease and deficits, amputations, pulmonary disease, orthopedic conditions, spinal cord injury and medically complex conditions.
The facility also will have inpatient and outpatient services. Typical patient stays are between 10 and 14 days, and those types of uses usually seek to locate near larger hospitals, according to a memorandum previously provided to Miamisburg City Council.
Miamisburg City Council voted unanimously Tuesday evening to rezone the site from research-office and light industrial use to hospital use.
Construction is set to launch next month and wrap up by March 2022, if all goes according as planned, Anthony Lampasona, chief development officer for Catalyst Healthcare Real Estate, previously told this news outlet.
