Parkview Hospital and Vibra Hospital of Fort Wayne said Tuesday they had signed a long-term lease for Vibra to move its long-term acute-care hospital to Parkview's Randallia campus.
The 24-bed hospital will occupy about 17,200 square feet on the second and fifth floors of Parkview Randallia, the hospitals said in a statement. They said they expected the move from 2626 Fairfield Ave. to be completed in December.
Vibra provides extended acute-care services such as pulmonary care, ventilator management and advanced wound care.
Parkview had previously said Vibra would move to the Randallia campus, but had not announced details.
"Parkview Hospital Randallia is a vibrant facility that continues to add services," said Dr. Greg Johnson, Parkview Hospital's associate chief medical officer, in the statement.
"This partnership with Vibra demonstrates our commitment to quality, service and meeting the needs of our community. The services provided by Vibra will be a tremendous benefit to patients in need of long term acute care.
John Pierson, chief executive officer of Vibra Hospital of Fort Wayne, said: "(T)he partnership and relocation will provide both Vibra Hospital and Parkview with the unique and timely opportunity to expand the availability of quality LTACH services to patients on a much broader scale."
