Kindred Healthcare LLC and Anderson Healthcare announce the opening of Anderson Rehabilitation Institute, located on Anderson Healthcare’s Goshen Campus in Edwardsville, Illinois.

The institute is reportedly the first freestanding rehabilitation institute in the Central and Southern regions of Illinois, according to a media release.

Anderson Rehabilitation Institute is a joint venture between Kindred and Anderson Healthcare. Once it begins accepting patients, the facility will provide care to patients recovering from stroke, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, amputation, and other complex conditions. Staff will provide physical, occupational, and speech therapy. Other special services provided will include physiatry, internal medicine, medical/surgical consultations, rehabilitation nursing and nutritional services. The institute will have a dedicated pharmacy.

The 49,920-square-foot facility has 34 beds and features all private rooms; a secured acquired brain injury unit with private dining and therapy gym; large interdisciplinary gym for all therapy services; transitional living apartment designed to simulate a residential apartment, to prepare patients for their daily living tasks before they are discharged home; and a therapeutic courtyard with exterior amenities.

It also has specially designed rooms to treat dialysis patients; and specialty programs dedicated to neuro, stroke, brain injury, and amputation.

Kindred manages the day-to-day operations of Anderson Rehabilitation Institute and Anderson Hospital provides any medical support services. The new institute replaces a 20-bed hospital-based acute rehabilitation unit at Anderson Hospital that Kindred has managed since 2004, the release continues.

“We are pleased to open our doors to this state-of-the-art institute and expand our existing relationship with Anderson Healthcare as we address the growing need for inpatient rehabilitation services in the state.”

— Russ Bailey, President, Kindred Rehabilitation

“Throughout its history, Anderson Healthcare has responded to the needs of Madison County and Southern Illinois residents. Each new service and every expansion has been in direct response to community needs. Our quality services are evident not only by our accreditations, certifications and designations but by our continued growth. Together with Kindred, we are proud to offer this level of care to patients requiring high-level rehabilitation.”

— Keith A. Page, President and CEO of Anderson Healthcare
