Covenant Announces Mary Free Bed Rehab Expansion
Covenant HealthCare and Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation are planning a $40.7 million expansion of rehab services on the main Covenant campus in Saginaw. The two organizations signed a partnership agreement in November 2017, with a Mary Free Bed at Covenant HealthCare program currently operating in a building south of the main Covenant campus on North Michigan.
The new building will have 48 private inpatient rehabilitation rooms with space for 12 beds in the future. It will also have leading-edge technology such as ceiling-mounted ambulation systems. Beyond that, officials of the two organization say the project is still in the early stages of development.
The new rehab hospital is expected to create 25 to 30 new jobs. Officials of the two organization say the project is still in the early stages of development.
