FORT SMITH, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — Mercy Hospital and Kindred Healthcare open a new rehab facility in Fort Smith.

The facility includes multiple therapy gyms, transitional living apartments, and a courtyard with golf, pickleball, and cornhole.

Sen. John Boozman was in town today for the grand opening.

“This is a facility that really is going to help so many in a time of suffering,” Sen. Boozman said. “It’s just a great example again of everybody working so hard for the benefit of others.”

Speakers during today’s grand opening included Gov. Asa Hutchinson.
