Additionally, Select Medical and Tucson, Ariz.-based Northwest Healthcare inked a joint-venture partnership to acquire the 47-bed Curahealth Tucson. The hospital will relocate to Northwest Healthcare's Tucson campus. 

Select Medical also entered into a joint-venture partnership with Ascension Saint Thomas in Nashville, Tenn. Under the partnership, the organizations will establish a new 30-bed critical illness recovery hospital inside Ascension's Saint Thomas Hospital West in Nashville. It will be branded as Select Specialty Hospital – Nashville West.

The long-term care operator also signed a joint-venture agreement to acquire ownership interest in eight HealthWorks Rehab and Fitness clinics in West Virginia.

Select Medical also said San Diego-based Scripps Health joined an existing joint-venture agreement between Select Medical and UC San Diego Health. The organizations jointly own Select Medical's 110-bed critical illness recovery hospital, Select Specialty Hospital – San Diego. Select Medical will retain its majority ownership and management of the 110-bed facility.
