Atrium Health recently broke ground on the new Atrium Health Carolinas Rehabilitation hospital in Charlotte.
The project is the first step in the modernization of Atrium Health’s Carolinas Medical Center campus. The new facility will be a one-of-a-kind regional rehabilitation hospital, according to the healthcare firm.
The new specialized hospital will feature a 150,000-sq.-ft. replacement hospital, 70 private patient rooms, a 9,300-sq.-ft. outpatient clinic, an outdoor therapy challenge garden, an aquatic therapy program and a center for independent living.
Construction on the new rehabilitation hospital is expected to take just over a year with a grand opening slated in the next 18-24 months.
