A Horsham rehab hospital might be on its way to aiding Montgomery County patients’ physical needs. Florida-based Workspace Property Trust wants to use a vacant building — previously occupied by Philidor, a mail order pharmacy company — according to John George’s account in the Philadelphia Business Journal.
It is unknown who will operate the hospital, but it still needs a variance from the zoning board to provide inpatient services. The initial plan is to house 50 employees and 41 beds, according to vice president Eric McHugh. The average length of stay is expected to be about 13 days.
The facility will provide services only to patients needing physical readmission.
While the plan is still in early negotiations, it is a part of other projects for the campus, such as the relocation of Thomas Jefferson University’s school of nursing.
McHugh said that there is a “a dearth of inpatient physical rehabilitation centers in Montgomery County.”
