The future hospital will serve the acute medical rehabilitation and long-term acute care needs of patients throughout the region, and be operated by a joint venture partnership between Monument Health and Vibra Healthcare, which operates 29 long-term acute care and rehabilitation hospitals nationwide.
Construction on the 55,000-square foot hospital is expected to begin this fall, the companies announced on Thursday, May 27.
The Rehabilitation and Critical Care Hospital of the Black Hills will have 36 rehabilitation beds, as well as 18 long-term acute care beds. It will be built near the northwest corner of the Catron Boulevard and U.S. Highway 16 intersection.
Monument Health’s existing rehabilitation hospital, now located at The Village at Skyline Pines Assisted Living and Memory Care, will move to the new facility when construction is complete. The new Long Term Acute Care Hospital (LTACH) will be part of the new facility. It will be the first LTACH in the region.
