245-year-old Concordville Inn in line to be renovated into a rehabilitation hospital

CONCORD TOWNSHIP — The 245-year-old Concordville Inn, a place where hundreds of Delaware County couples said “I do,” is likely to give way to a 50-bed rehabilitation hospital.

In November, Encompass Health Corp., owner and operator of 152 rehabilitation hospitals in 38 states, received approval from Concord Township for the inpatient facility.

Officials at Encompass, which is based in Birmingham, Ala., weren’t prepared to go into details about their plans but did confirm the zoning approval and tentative sale.

“We believe there is a strong need for enhanced rehabilitation services in the community. Encompass Health is committed to providing high-quality, clinical care for rehabilitation patients throughout Pennsylvania, and our intent is to expand our presence to serve more residents,” a spokesperson said in a statement.

The new development does not include the adjoining 115-room Best Western Plus Hotel.

The Concordville Inn website states the historic 1777 Inn at 780 Baltimore Pike has been a family-run business for years, offering remnants of old-fashioned tradition combined with a taste of the newly renovated dining rooms, upbeat bar and grille, outside seasonal rooftop terrace and curbside to go. The facility has three ballrooms accommodating up to 320 guests and sits on 20 acres.

In August, Encompass announced plans to build a freestanding 50-bed inpatient rehabilitation hospital in Lower Providence Township, Montgomery County.

A press release announcing the Lower Providence hospital, its 10th in Pennsylvania, said it will serve patients recovering from debilitating illnesses and injuries, including strokes and other neurological disorders, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputations and complex orthopedic conditions.

That hospital will feature all private patient rooms, a gym with advanced rehabilitation technologies and activities of daily living suite, cafeteria, dining room, pharmacy and therapy courtyard.

Officials at the Concordville Inn did not return calls for comment.

The story originally reported by the Philadelphia Business Journal indicates the final agreement of sale will be finalized in January with the inn leasing back the space through 2023 to cover existing scheduled events.
