A new facility, Life Care Center of East Ridge in Tennessee,  has opened. 

With 108 beds, the new facility sits on the site of one of Life Care's first nursing homes, which closed in 2015. It cost $24.8 million to rebuild, the Chattanooga Times Free-Press reported.

The 81,000-square-foot facility will be led by Robert Hubbartt, who was previously the head of Life Care Center in Athens, TN.

Rooms are all private, and features include a balance park and large rehab gym. The center will focus  on neurological rehabilitation for patients with diagnoses including Parkinson's disease, strokes, infections and traumatic brain injuries, the newspaper reported.
