Health Leaders Media

A Community Hospital Corporation subsidiary is finalizing its plans to open or expand seven long-term acute-care hospitals in four states in 2015.

The expansions directed by CHC ContinueCARE come in the midst of a three-year federal moratorium on new LTACH hospitals that was slipped into the Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014 at the last moment.

Leslie Boney, CHC’s senior vice president of Post-Acute Services, says the Plano, TX-based hospital and healthcare services company secured the seven exemptions before the moratorium went into effect and that all seven projects will be launched in 2015.
