PeaceHealth and Lifepoint Rehabilitation have received regulatory approval to build a 67,000-square-foot inpatient rehabilitation hospital in Springfield, Oregon.

The standalone building will have 42 inpatient beds with additional space for future expansion. It will be next to a PeaceHealth urgent care facility called the PeaceHealth RiverBend Annex.

PeaceHealth and Lifepoint Rehabilitation will break ground on the facility in October and open it in January 2026. According to a press release, the new rehabilitation hospital will be majority owned by PeaceHealth and run through a joint venture board of directors with Lifepoint Rehabilitation. Lifepoint Rehabilitation will manage the day-to-day operations of the facility.

The facility will provide intensive nursing, physical, occupational and speech pathology services for adults recovering from conditions such as stroke, neurological disease, brain or spinal cord injury, and other debilitating illnesses or injuries. The new facility will feature the region’s first brain injury unit.

Lifepoint Rehabilitation, which is a business unit of Lifepoint Health, already has partnered with PeaceHealth on a similar, 27-bed unit at PeaceHealth Sacred Heart Medical Center RiverBend in Springfield.
