MECHANICSBURG, Pa. and JACKSON, Tenn. – December 22, 2021 – Select Medical today
announced a joint venture agreement with West Tennessee Healthcare to own and operate a 50-bed
critical illness recovery hospital serving Madison and surrounding counties.
“Select Medical and West Tennessee Healthcare recognized a tremendous opportunity to partner and
extend the region’s continuum of care bringing post-acute clinical services to treat chronic, critically ill
patients” said Tom Mullin, executive vice president of specialty hospitals at Select Medical. “This
new joint venture will not only eliminate the need for patients and their families to travel up to two
hours for long-term recovery options, they can now be assured the best care is right in their backyard
within a system they already know and trust.”
The new joint venture critical illness recovery hospital (licensed as a long-term acute care hospital)
will be named Select Specialty Hospital – West Tennessee and located on the 5th and 6th floors of
Jackson-Madison County Hospital. Patient admissions are expected to begin in late 2022.
“We are very excited about this partnership with Select Medical to provide long-term care services
close to home,” said James Ross, president and chief executive officer of West Tennessee. “We look
forward to working with Select Medical to improve the health and well-being of our critically ill patients
in the region.”
