The Rehabilitation Institute of Ohio, a joint venture between Premier Health and Encompass Health, formerly known as the Encompass Health Rehabilitation Hospital of Dayton, is now serving patients in its new home.
Now a joint venture of Premier Health, the largest comprehensive health system in southwest Ohio known for its award-winning medical care, and Encompass Health, the nation’s leading provider of inpatient rehabilitation services, the rehabilitation hospital is located at 835 South Main Street in Dayton, across from the Miami Valley Hospital campus.
“We are excited to begin serving patients in our new hospital location, which is specifically designed with our patients’ needs in mind,” said Barb Jacobsmeyer, executive vice president and president of inpatient hospitals at Encompass Health. “Our partnership with Premier Health will continue to strengthen the exceptional, life-changing rehabilitation services being provided to our patients.”
The new hospital includes 60 private patient rooms, a spacious therapy gym, an in-house pharmacy, courtyard, dialysis suite, three bariatric rooms, an isolation room, dining room and dayroom areas.
“This project unites the strengths of both our organizations under one roof,” said Mary Boosalis, president and CEO of Premier Health. “As the region’s only Level I trauma center, Miami Valley Hospital must maintain a significant number of inpatient rehabilitation beds to serve trauma patients and others from across the region. This joint venture will help us serve that community need while delivering great value and care for our patients.”
The Company previously announced future openings of inpatient rehabilitation hospitals in markets across the country.
