Mercy Health — Youngstown in Ohio broke ground Aug. 31 on an inpatient rehabilitation hospital it is building in partnership with Lifepoint Rehabilitation.

The 66,000-square-foot, two-story facility will be called Mercy Health Rehabilitation Hospital. It is expected to cost about $43.8 million to build. The projected opening is in late 2024. The hospital will have 60 private rooms, multidisciplinary therapy gymnasiums, outdoor courtyards and other spaces designed to help patients return to activities of daily living, according to a release from Mercy Health.

The new hospital will include a 12-bed brain injury unit with private dining and a therapy gym. All units will be structurally designed for the needs of patients receiving acute inpatient rehabilitation care for stroke, traumatic brain injury, amputation and other injuries and disorders.

Mercy Health, part of Bon Secours Mercy Health, has 22 hospitals across Ohio and Kentucky. Lifepoint Rehabilitation is a unit of Lifepoint Health, based in Brentwood, Tennessee. Lifepoint Health has acute care hospitals and rehabilitation and behavioral health facilities in 31 states.

Earlier this year, Mercy Health — Youngstown and Lifepoint Behavioral Health, another business unit of Lifepoint Health, announced they had formed a separate partnership to construct and operate a 72-bed inpatient behavioral health hospital. That facility will cost about $44 million to build.
