New hospital in Pineville to serve range of rehab needs

September 17, 2013 by  

Carolinas HealthCare System Rehabilitation and Carolinas Specialty Hospital recently announced that they have been involved in a joint venture resulting in the creation of a hospital in Pineville. At a cost of $40 million, it will serve patients needing inpatient rehabilitation and long-term acute care. No doubt the two organizations have been using flyer printing to let the community become aware of this new facility and the treatments it will offer.

The hospital is 86,500 square feet in size and is located at CMC-Pineville – a campus on the Carolinas HealthCare System, which is based in Charlotte.

On the second floor of the facility, Carolinas Rehabilitation will have 29 inpatient beds and also provide a therapy garden, inpatient gym, and a living, transitional setting so as to simulate a home environment. On the third and fourth floors, there will be an independent 40-bed facility operated by Carolinas Specialty. The first floor of the facility will be shared by organizations for radiology, educations, admissions, dining, and family services.

According to the chief executive of Carolinas Specialty Hospital, Dan Dunmyer, this was a natural fit to bring together inpatient rehabilitation and long-term acute care. He added that more such collaborations and cooperation will continue to take place across the nation.

Patients with medical conditions involving multiple chronic diseases (such as heart problems, diabetes, and respiratory problems) are the primary patients of Carolinas Specialty. With the new space, Dunmyer said that Carolinas Specialty will be better able to meet the needs of its patients with more patient rooms and additional capacity for medical equipment.
