AUSTIN, Texas (July 2, 2018) – Baylor Scott & White Health and Select Medical today announced the opening of a fourth inpatient rehabilitation hospital as part of their newly expanded joint venture. The 36-bed inpatient rehabilitation hospital is located in Lakeway, Texas, and will operate under the name Baylor Scott & White Institute for Rehabilitation – Lakeway; the hospital transaction closed June 26. The expansion also includes 16 Select Medical outpatient rehabilitation clinics and six Baylor Scott & White Health outpatient rehabilitation clinics that were acquired by the joint venture on July 1, and will now operate as outpatient departments of Baylor Scott & White Institute for Rehabilitation – Lakeway.

The joint venture was originally formed in 2011 in North Texas and now includes 88 outpatient rehabilitation clinics, four inpatient rehabilitation hospitals, and home health rehabilitation services, collectively staffed by more than 1,900 employees.

"This opening also increases our national footprint as Select Medical’s twenty sixth inpatient rehabilitation hospital."

"These two organizations, each with deep expertise, together will elevate the rehabilitation services offered in the Austin area," said Jay Fox, president, Baylor Scott & White Health – Austin/Round Rock region. "We continue to grow our footprint for those we serve."
