Select Medical announced today that it has purchased an interest in two inpatient rehabilitation hospitals in the San Antonio and Phoenix markets from GlobalRehab Management LLC and its affiliates.
“We are pleased to not only strengthen our post-acute care presence in these markets, but to have found partners equally dedicated to providing high-quality clinical outcomes and a great patient experience,” Robert Ortenzio, CEO of Select Medical, said in a news release. Select Medical is based in Lower Allen Township, Cumberland County.
GlobalRehab at Scottsdale Healthcare, part of a joint venture with Scottsdale Healthcare, operates 50 beds. The greater Phoenix market also includes three Select Specialty Hospitals and 12 Select Physical Therapy outpatient clinics.
The newly named Select Rehabilitation Hospital of San Antonio operates 42 beds. The San Antonio market also includes one Select Specialty Hospital and two Select Physical Therapy outpatient clinics.
The two hospitals join a dozen other inpatient rehabilitation facilities in the Select Medical network, such as Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation, one of only seven centers in the country to receive federal designation as a model system for the treatment and research of both spinal cord injury and brain injury.
In addition, Select Medical owns West Gables Rehabilitation Hospital in South Florida and has ownership interest in and manages Baylor Institute for Rehabilitation in Dallas, SSM Rehabilitation Hospital in St. Louis, and Penn State Hershey Rehabilitation Hospital in Pennsylvania.
The company’s post-acute care network also includes more than 100 specialty hospitals known as Long-Term Acute Care (LTAC) hospitals and nearly 1,000 outpatient clinics offering physical rehabilitation services and athletic training.
