Second Hospital Coming to Sacramento Campus

Jan 8, 2019 | Fall/Winter 2018-19, Health, On Campus

UC Davis, with Kindred Healthcare, will construct and operate a second hospital on its Sacramento campus to provide more inpatient rehabilitation services in Sacramento County. The facility will provide care for twice as many physical rehab patients as currently can be treated at UC Davis Medical Center. The $60 million hospital will create 200 new jobs and offer convenient care for local patients and families. It will be located at Aggie Square, the university’s newly announced technology and innovation hub just south of the medical center.

“Aggie Square brings the university, industry and the community together to build for the future,” said UC Davis Chancellor Gary S. May. “This new UC Davis hospital reflects that type of vital public-private partnership. It will include innovative technologies to help patients get back to their lives faster and healthier, provide opportunities for collaboration with biomedical research, and it will create new economic opportunities for the surrounding community.”

To be known as the UC Davis Rehabilitation Hospital, the facility, with all private rooms, will offer rehabilitation treatments for patients recovering from conditions such as stroke, traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injury.
