ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the rise of acquisitions and mergers among U.S. long-term acute-care hospitals as a way to expand their coordinated care. In May 2011, Kindred Healthcare agreed to buy RehabCare Group for 1.3 billion dollars which would allow the former to expand its reach to post-acute services. After its acquisition with Regency Hospital Co. in 2010, Select Medical Holdings Corp. continues to expand its hospital business via partnerships with Baylor Health Care System.
