A HealthSouth official says the Rehabilitation Hospital of Southwest Virginia is almost done.
HealthSouth marketing director Robert Ley says a ribbon cutting for the $5 million, 25-bed hospital is scheduled for July 13. It's going to be operated by HealthSouth and Wellmont Health System.
Ley says there's a need for another rehab hospital. There's already a 50-bed hospital in Kingsport, Tenn.
The new hospital is expected to employ about 100 people and provide therapy for patients with traumatic injuries, strokes and other health problems.
