Altru has named Luke Lawrimore as the CEO of the future Altru Rehabilitation Hospital.

Lawrimore began his time in the position on Nov. 15 and is responsible for overseeing the hospital’s day-to-day operations, as well as patient care and quality.

Altru Rehabilitation Hospital will provide 24-hour nursing care to patients recovering from major illnesses and injuries, including strokes, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputations and complex orthopedic conditions. The 40-bed inpatient rehabilitation hospital, which is under construction at 4500 South Washington Street in Grand Forks, is expected to begin caring for patients in June 2022.

“Luke brings extensive clinical and leadership experience to his new role as CEO, including significant experience at Encompass Health,” Brad Kennedy, president of Encompass Health’s South Central region, said. "I am confident in his vision for the hospital and know that he will make incredible contributions to the future Altru Rehabilitation Hospital. We look forward to opening this hospital, in partnership with Altru, expanding high-quality, rehabilitative care in the region, helping patients heal and find hope again through therapy services customized for their needs and goals.”

Lawrimore has served in multiple leadership roles at Encompass Health since 2015, including as therapy team leader and supervisor at Encompass Health of North Alabama and, most recently, in various leadership roles at Encompass Health of Dothan for the past three years, including rotations of director of therapy operations, interim director of case management, and hospital administrator, according to a news release.
