Indiana LTAC hospital to close in January

Mechanicsburg, Pa.-based Select Medical will close its long-term acute care hospital in Fort Wayne, Ind., by Jan. 20, according to The Journal Gazette.

Select Specialty Hospital-Fort Wayne's closure will affect 103 employees. Indiana's Rapid Response team, which offers services to workers affected by layoffs and plant closures, will help the hospital's employees find new jobs by providing resume review, interview workshops and skills assessments, according to the report. 

"We hope to accomplish this closing with the least possible disruption to the lives of our employees and the community," said John Saich, Select's executive vice president and chief human resources officer, in a letter to the Indiana Department of Workforce Development, according to the report.
