Select Medical Partners with UPMC to Expand Post-Acute Care Footprint in Central Pennsylvania with New Inpatient Rehabilitation Hospital on West Shore

MECHANICSBURG, PA, October 6, 2022 – Select Medical today announced it plans to open a third inpatient rehabilitation hospital in Central Pennsylvania to serve the expanding needs of the West Shore region.

The new freestanding hospital, in partnership with UPMC, will feature 35 private rooms and state-of-the-art rehabilitation equipment to treat patients recovering from stroke, spinal cord injury, brain injury, amputation, neurological disorders and orthopedic conditions.

“We have seen an increasingly high demand for inpatient rehabilitative care in the region, particularly on the West Shore,” said Tom Mullin, executive vice president of hospital operations at Select Medical. “We look forward to expanding our post-acute care services with the new hospital to support the needs of patients and their families as well as our regional acute care partners to ensure the best possible outcomes for those we serve.”

The company currently operates two other inpatient rehabilitation hospitals on Central Pennsylvania’s East Shore through joint venture partnerships – Helen M. Simpson with UPMC and Penn State Health Rehabilitation Hospital with Penn State Health.

Targeting a 2023 opening, Select Medical will renovate an existing building located on UPMC’s West Shore Campus on Technology Parkway in Mechanicsburg to expedite time to market.
