The UC Davis Rehabilitation Hospital will serve the growing clinical
needs of the Sacramento region. The hospital will treat patients
recovering from conditions such as stroke, traumatic brain injury and
spinal cord injury. Kindred will manage the day-to-day operations of the
hospital, and patients will enjoy leading-edge care provided by UC Davis
physicians and clinical staff, along with all private rooms. Subject to
several regulatory and other approvals, the partners expect the
inpatient rehabilitation hospital to open by the third quarter of 2020.

"We are confident that our partnership to build and operate this new
facility with UC Davis Health will address the growing need for
inpatient rehabilitation services in the Sacramento and Northern
California area," said Jason Zachariah, President of Kindred
Rehabilitation Services, a division of Kindred. "This quality-focused
collaboration with a premier healthcare system will deliver the kind of
excellent care and experience that improves patients' lives. This
partnership is another example of why our inpatient rehabilitation
business continuously outperforms peers in key clinical measures."

"The UC Davis Rehabilitation Hospital reflects the health system's
clinical-care vision for patients, which is to be a provider of choice
for state-of-the-art treatment and to develop the therapies that
post-acute care patients require," said UC Davis Chancellor Gary S. May.
"It also reflects the vision of Aggie Square – bringing the university,
community and industry together to build the future. At this hospital,
we'll be caring for patients and offering innovative technologies to
help patients get back to their lives faster and healthier after
surgeries and other types of treatment."
