TriHealth and Select Medical announced they are planning a partnership to build and operate a 60-bed, acute inpatient rehabilitation hospital located in the Keystone Parke in Evanston, along Interstate 71 and Dana Avenue. With an expected opening by late 2015, TriHealth Rehabilitation Hospital will serve Cincinnati's growing need for inpatient rehabilitation. Once it is fully operational, the hospital is expected to employ 180 staff.
Once approved by both parties, the joint venture will create a limited liability company between TriHealth and Select Medical, a national leader in providing medical rehabilitation services and long-term, acute care across the country. TriHealth provides acute rehab services in a 16-bed unit at Bethesda North Hospital, and a 30-bed unit at Good Samaritan Hospital. Once construction is completed for the new hospital, care provided at both units will be transferred to the new rehabilitation hospital. Select Medical will manage the two units until the new hospital is open and then serve as managing partner at the new location.
TriHealth has worked with Select Medical since 1997. Currently Select Medical leases space in the Good Samaritan and Bethesda North Hospitals for its Select Specialty Hospitals, long-term acute care hospitals.
"This higher level of specialty care benefits our rehabilitation patients by allowing us to combine our existing units and expertise at a single, larger location specifically designed to meet their rehabilitation needs," said John Prout, President and Chief Executive Officer at TriHealth. "Select Medical is a national leader in providing acute rehabilitation services and we felt it important to make these services available to meet the needs of our community."
"The partnership builds on the patient-focused rehabilitation care already offered at TriHealth," said David S. Chernow, president and CEO of Select Medical. "We think very highly of TriHealth's reputation for clinical excellence and dedication to providing a great patient experience, and truly look forward to building a lasting relationship together."
The new hospital will offer the region the most advanced treatment possible for individuals with spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, stroke, amputation, neurological disorders and musculoskeletal and orthopedic conditions. In addition, Select Medical's renowned Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation will provide significant support for new clinical program development, specialized services, enhanced access to research and clinical education.
