LOUISVILLE, Ky. and BRENTWOOD, Tenn. (July 19, 2023) – UofL Health and Lifepoint Rehabilitation, a business unit of Lifepoint Health, are celebrating the opening of Frazier Rehabilitation Hospital - Brownsboro, a 55,000-square-foot inpatient rehabilitation hospital now serving patients in eastern Louisville.
“Accessible and affordable healthcare is a right for every Kentuckian,” said Kentucky Lt. Governor Jacqueline Coleman. “The new Frazier Rehabilitation Hospital- Brownsboro will help patients recover and return home. I applaud UofL Health and Lifepoint Rehabilitation for their investment in Team Kentucky.”
With 40 beds, the new facility anticipates serving more than 1,200 patients each year, addressing a growing need for inpatient rehabilitation services throughout the region. Inpatient rehabilitation facilities offer patient-centered therapy programs designed to support those who have experienced a loss of function from an injury or illness through intensive, specialized treatment and recovery.
“UofL Health and Lifepoint Health are proud to share the common rehabilitation goal of helping each individual reach their fullest potential,” said Tom Miller, CEO of UofL Health. “This new hospital increases rehabilitation access in multiple ways. The location is convenient for the growing east end of Louisville, and it frees up essential space to further grow specialty programs only available downtown. I applaud Lifepoint for this joint investment and we look forward to serving even more of our community.”
Frazier Rehabilitation Hospital - Brownsboro provides acute rehabilitation and recovery for patients who suffer from stroke, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, complex neurological disorders, orthopedic conditions, multiple traumas, amputation and other injuries or disorders.
