Atlantic Health System and Kindred Healthcare broke ground recently on Atlantic Rehabilitation Institute, the first phase of a health service campus at Giralda Farms.

When completed, the two-story, 38-bed rehabilitation facility located in Madison, NJ, will feature all-private rooms; a secured acquired brain injury unit with private dining and therapy gym; large interdisciplinary gyms; a therapeutic courtyard with golf, basketball, and varied surfaces; a dialysis suite; and will offer specialty programs dedicated to neuro, stroke, brain injury, spinal cord injury, and amputation.

The building will also include a transitional living apartment designed to simulate a residential apartment, to prepare patients for their daily living tasks before they are discharged home.

It will be built on approximately 46,000 square feet of land, part of a 40-acre parcel of Giralda Farms owned by Atlantic Health System that will be developed into a campus for health services, according to a media release from Atlantic Health System.

As part of a joint venture, it will be operated by Kindred, making it reportedly the first Kindred inpatient rehabilitation venture in New Jersey.

“We are pleased to work with the premier healthcare provider in New Jersey and break ground on this high-quality post-acute care institute that will greatly benefit the community,” says Jason Zachariah, president of Kindred Rehabilitation Services, a division of Kindred, in the release. “Atlantic Health System has been a great partner, and we look forward to continuing to work with them on this quality-focused collaboration.”

“Our focus is expanding accessibility to high-quality health care for our patients,” adds Amy Perry, senior vice president, Integrated Care Delivery and CEO of Atlantic Health System’s Hospital Division, per the release. “The combination of Atlantic Health System and Kindred, in a modernized, convenient location puts top-caliber rehabilitation services within the communities we serve.”
