  • September 22, 2015 - Great Lakes Specialty Hospitals to Change Name; Patients and Families Will Continue to Receive the Same Superior Service

    Great Lakes Specialty Hospital - Oak, LLC and Great Lakes Specialty Hospital - Hackley, LLC ("Great Lakes Specialty Hospitals") will be doing business as Select Specialty Hospital - Grand Rapids and Select Specialty Hospital - Muskegon, respectively. The name change is reflection of the existing relationship between the Great Lakes Specialty Hospitals and Select Medical, one of the nation's largest providers of specialized care.

    Long-term acute care hospitals in the Select Medical family operate under the names Regency or Select Specialty Hospital. SSH - Grand Rapids is a 20-bed facility and serves the Grand Rapids and western Michigan region; SSH – Muskegon is a 31-bed facility serving the western Michigan region along the lakeshore.

    The hospitals provide long-term acute care hospitalization to promote healing and recovery from critical and complex medical and surgical conditions. Programs and services have been designed to fit in the continuum of health care for those patients that are critically ill and need a longer acute hospitalization for their recovery. Select Specialty Hospitals are accredited by the Joint Commission, Medicare certified and licensed by the state in which they are located.

    Select Medical's more than 40,000 employees operate or support more than 100 hospitals specializing in long-term acute care, 17 inpatient rehabilitation hospitals, and nearly 1,500 outpatient centers offering physical and occupational therapy and/or occupational medicine.
