MECHANICSBURG, Pa., Oct. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- 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 who suffer from stroke, spinal cord injury, brain injury, amputation, neurological disorders and orthopedic conditions. The new hospital will begin taking patients today.

"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.
