Proposed $61M rehab hospital could come to Bangor in early 2027


The nation’s largest owner and operator of rehabilitation hospitals could open a 50-bed inpatient facility in Bangor in January 2027, according to its application recently filed with the state.

Encompass Health Corp. outlined its intent to build the facility, estimated to cost $61.4 million, at 1017 Union St. in a Nov. 6, 2023, letter. An application filed with the Maine Department of Health and Human Services last month reveals new details, including the company’s timeline for opening and hospital amenities.

Encompass partners with MaineHealth to run the New England Rehabilitation Hospital in Portland, but this proposal marks its foray into Bangor.
