UW Hospital and a company from Tennessee plan to build a 50-bed rehabilitation hospital next to the UW Health complex going up on Madison’s Far East Side.
The facility, called Madison Rehabilitation Hospital, will be a joint venture between UW Hospital and Centerre Healthcare Corp., based in Nashville, Tenn. The expected cost is about $20 million.
Pending purchase of the land and required city approvals, the rehab hospital will be built across the street from UW Health at The American Center, a 56-bed hospital, clinic and wellness center complex to open in 2015.
Construction on the $220 million complex started in April. Work on the rehab hospital is expected to begin this fall and be done by 2015.
