In The Region:

Cleveland Clinic wants to expand in the realm of inpatient rehabilitation services.  So it is partnering with Select Medical, a nationally known leader in the field. Together they will build a new 60-bed rehabilitation hospital on Cleveland’s west side and improve rehab capabilities throughout the Cleveland Clinic system.  WKSU’s Tim Rudell reports.

Dr. Fredrick Frost, who chairs Cleveland Clinic’s Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, says the new hospital is to be built in Avon, but that there is a lot more than that to the Select Medical deal. Dr. Frederick Frost of Cleveland Clinic

“A corner piece if the partnership involves construction of the new rehabilitation hospital in Avon, so we’re featuring that. But Select is also proving management resources for our other venues, and access to research and educational venues that they have in their system."

And, Frost says, one reason the Clinic sought to partner with Select Medical is the Pennsylvania-based company’s history of collaborating with and helping major academic hospitals — like Baylor University Health Systems in Texas and both Cedars-Sinai and UCLA Health Systems in California.

The Avon facility is expected to be completed by the end of next year.
