Mountain States Health Enters Rehabilitation, Skilled Nursing Partnerships

Mountain States Health Alliance, a 14-hospital health system based in Johnson City, Tenn., has announced two new partnerships meant to expand its rehabilitation and skilled nursing services.

First, MSHA has entered a definitive agreement to form a joint venture with Birmingham, Ala.-based rehabilitative hospital services provider HealthSouth Corp. Under the agreement, MSHA and HealthSouth will expand services at Quillen Rehabilitation Hospital in Johnson City — a freestanding 26-bed inpatient rehabilitation hospital currently operated by MSHA, according to a news release.

In a separate agreement, MSHA signed a letter of intent with long-term nursing care provider Signature HealthCARE, based in Louisville, Ky., to demolish North Side Hospital in Johnson City and develop a skilled nursing facility and assisted living community in its place. The new facility will have 47 skilled nursing beds and 60 assisted living beds, according to the release.

"After an illness, people want to get back to what they love to do," Alan Levine, MSHA president and CEO said in the release. "Our mission is to help them regain their independence and be as active as they can be. We're excited about these new partnerships because we believe they will enhance the great work our people are already doing."
