Stonerise Healthcare is proud to announce its plan to to partner with Thomas Health System to develop an innovative post-acute center. The plans include the construction of a $17 million post-acute facility in South Charleston that will allow the hospital system to create a model of care coordination that will be the first of its kind in West Virginia.
The facility will be constructed on the Thomas Memorial Hospital campus. Thomas Health System and Stonerise hope to begin the project in the summer, although they are awaiting final approval from the West Virginia Health Care Authority.
The 71,000 square-foot facility will specialize in six post-acute care arenas: Pulmonary, cardiac telemetry, joint-replacement rehabilitation, wound care, cancer/palliative care, and long-term care. The concept of the model would be to enhance provider accountability and close gaps in care services that are often harmful to the patient recovery process. Additionally, the hope is to reduce unnecessary medical costs by having a more streamlined approach to care and services.
The center would create upward of 100 jobs, which would be a boost to the South Charleston economy.
