Licensed as long-term acute care hospitals, our hospitals form a national network of critical illness recovery hospitals. Our typical patient survived critical care but has continued weakness and significant medical needs. Select Specialty and Regency hospitals are designed to provide comprehensive, specialized care for high-acuity patients who need more time to recover.
Our clinical practice is guided by medical directors and chief nursing officers, who follow rigorous guidelines approved by Select Medical’s National Medical Advisory Board (NMAB). The board consists of more than a dozen leading physicians and clinical specialists. In close collaboration with our Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Samuel Hammerman, MMM, CPE, FCCP, NMAB, local hospital leadership and medical staff help our treatment teams recognize and use successful, clinically-tested treatments.
We are a subsidiary of Select Medical, which was founded in 1996.
