January 13, 2020 | Original Article
An inpatient-only rehabilitation hospital is being proposed for a vacant, four-acre piece of land in Greenfield.
The proposed $15 million facility would house 40 beds and offer physical and occupational therapy, rehabilitation nursing and speech-language pathology, according to details submitted to the city’s plan commission, which will consider the proposal at its Jan. 14 meeting.
The facility would be run by the Irving, Texas-based Nobis Rehabilitation Partners, which develops inpatient rehab centers across the country.
A similar facility, the Rehabilitation Hospital of Wisconsin in Waukesha, offers similar services, but not exclusively inpatient therapy, whereas the proposed facility in Greenfield would strictly offer inpatient care, documents said.
The facility, which would be located at 3200 S. 103rd St., expects at least 85% of its beds to be occupied on an average day, with patients staying 12-14 days before being discharged, documents said.
The building would stand three stories, each spanning 15,000 square feet. It would be staffed with 60 people during the day and 40 at night.
