Kindred Healthcare, LLC and Landmark Medical Center, a subsidiary of Prime Healthcare, today announced a definitive agreement to create a partnership that will own and operate the Rehabilitation Hospital of Rhode Island in North Smithfield, Rhode Island.

Kindred Healthcare will have a 60 percent ownership interest in the joint venture and Landmark will own 40 percent. The hospital is licensed for 82 rehabilitation beds.

Under the agreement, Kindred will bring its proven rehabilitation management and services expertise to the existing hospital, which serves patients from across Rhode Island and neighboring Massachusetts. Each year, Kindred Rehabilitation Services treats nearly 50,000 patients at its joint venture inpatient rehabilitation hospitals across the country. Kindred’s inpatient rehabilitation hospitals serve patients who are recovering from a variety of conditions, including stroke, brain injury, spinal cord injury, orthopedic injury, neurological conditions, amputation and trauma.

“We have great respect for the professionals at Landmark and look forward to entering the Rhode Island and greater New England markets in partnership with them,” said Russ Bailey, Chief Operating Officer, Kindred Rehabilitation Hospitals. “This partnership will enable us to expand the services provided and help more patients recover from their illnesses or injuries, restore function and regain the independence needed to get back to their lives.”

“This partnership is built upon the Rehabilitation Hospital of Rhode Island’s outstanding reputation, which will be enhanced by the clinical expertise and patient outcomes for which Kindred Healthcare is well known,” said Mike Souza, CEO, Landmark Medical Center and the Rehabilitation Hospital of Rhode Island. “We look forward to working with Kindred to develop a best in class continuum of care.”

Kindred and Prime expect to complete the transaction by the third quarter of 2020, subject to the completion of due diligence, regulatory and licensing approvals.
