Kindred Rehabilitation Services and South Florida Health to Build Inpatient Rehabilitation Hospital

Kindred Rehabilitation Services and South Florida Health recently formed a partnership to construct and operate a 40-bed inpatient rehabilitation hospital adjacent to Broward Health Medical Center in Fort Lauderdale. 

“One of Broward Health’s primary goals is to increase access to high-quality care,” says Shane Strum, President and CEO of Broward Health. “This new hospital, and the collaboration with Kindred Rehabilitation Services and South Florida Health, will help ensure that our patients have the ability to seamlessly transition from the recovery setting into rehabilitation, receiving care close to home as they reclaim their lives.”

The new hospital will feature all private rooms and focus on acute rehabilitation for patients who suffer from stroke, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, complex neurological disorders, orthopedic conditions, multiple trauma, amputation and other injuries or ailments. The rehabilitation facility will also feature multidisciplinary therapy gymnasiums equipped with the latest therapeutic technologies, including augmented reality balance training, therapy bionics and a full-body exoskeleton. Additionally, it will include a therapeutic courtyard with exterior amenities to support patient care and help patients return to daily living activities.

“We are excited to work with South Florida Health and Broward Health— one of the 10 largest public healthcare systems in the U.S., to increase access to high-quality inpatient rehabilitation services in South Florida,” says Russ Bailey, president of Kindred Rehabilitation Services. “As with our existing rehabilitation hospitals across the country, this new hospital will be dedicated to passionately advocating for patients and providing the hope, healing and recovery they need.”

The facility is expected to open during Q3 in 2023.

“We are thrilled to be able to bring much-needed rehabilitation services to the citizens of Broward County,” says Jim Petkas, CEO of South Florida Health. “And working with a high-quality organization like Kindred Rehabilitation Services will ensure that the level of service is of the highest order.”
