Select Medical Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Select Medical Holdings Corporation (NYSE: SEM), today announced the opening of a new medical rehabilitation hospital in Beachwood, Ohio, as part of a joint venture with Cleveland Clinic.
The new 60-bed inpatient hospital, Cleveland Clinic Rehabilitation Hospital, Beachwood, features private rooms and state-of-the-art rehabilitation equipment to treat patients affected by stroke, spinal cord injury, brain injury, amputation, neurological disorders and orthopedic conditions. The new hospital will begin treating patients today.
“Together, with Cleveland Clinic, we are bringing world-class care to the greater Cleveland region in the area of medical rehabilitation,” said David S. Chernow, president and CEO, Select Medical. “Our joint venture, anchored by a shared mission and commitment to deliver high quality care and clinical outcomes, continues to grow with the needs of the community it serves.”
The new Beachwood location marks the second medical rehabilitation hospital to open under the joint venture. Cleveland Clinic Rehabilitation Hospital, Avon opened its doors in December 2015. In November, a third rehabilitation hospital will open in Bath, Ohio. The focus of the joint venture between the organizations is to enhance inpatient rehabilitation services in Northeast Ohio and improve access for patients with complex rehabilitation needs.
“The demand for rehabilitation is rising across Northeast Ohio and this beautiful new facility will allow patients to access state-of-the-art treatment,” says Fredrick Frost, M.D., chair of Cleveland Clinic’s Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. “In the first two years, Cleveland Clinic Rehabilitation Hospital, Avon has consistently beaten the national benchmarks for quality and outcomes. We are now thrilled to offer integrated rehabilitation care to Cleveland’s east and southern regions, directed by Cleveland Clinic doctors.”
Cleveland Clinic Rehabilitation Hospital, Beachwood is an acute inpatient rehabilitation facility. Its patients will have physician specialty care, including physicians trained in physical medicine and rehabilitation. Programming at the new hospital will take advantage of Select Medical’s experience by partnering with its flagship hospital Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation in New Jersey. For at least a decade, U.S.News & World Report has named Kessler among the top one percent of the nation’s rehabilitation hospitals.
