North Florida Rehabilitation Hospital, a 50-bed, 60,00-square-foot inpatient facility, is open in West Jacksonville.

The $48 million, two-story hospital is at 7775 Volunteer Way. It is on 5.55 acres at southwest Normandy Boulevard and Interstate 295.

The Sanders Trust, the developer, announced the opening May 28. The health care real estate investment and development company is based in Birmingham, Alabama.

North Florida Rehabilitation Hospital includes a 12-bed brain injury unit, multidisciplinary therapy gymnasiums, a specialized “activities of daily living” suite, and outdoor courtyards designed to promote patient ambulation and activity, the news release said.

It is operated by Lifepoint Rehabilitation, a business unit of Brentwood, Tennessee-based Lifepoint Health.

“Lifepoint Rehabilitation brings its personalized inpatient care model to the new facility, focusing on acute rehabilitation and recovery for patients who suffer from stroke, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, complex neurological disorders, orthopedic conditions, multiple traumas, amputation and other injuries or disorders,” according to the release.

Lifepoint Health “has a growing diversified healthcare delivery network comprised of nearly 55,000 dedicated employees, 60 community hospital campuses, more than 60 rehabilitation and behavioral health hospitals and 250 additional sites of care, including managed acute rehabilitation units, outpatient centers and post-acute care facilities,” according to the company’ website, lifepointhealth.net.

Kindred Rehabilitation Services, which was acquired by Lifepoint Health, announced plans for the hospital in February 2022.

The hospital’s grand opening was May 16.

“We are grateful for our partnership with Lifepoint Health and their commitment to providing exceptional care. This hospital will greatly enhance the quality of life for those it serves,” Rance Sanders, president and CEO of The Sanders Trust, said in the release.
