HealthSouth Finalizes Sale of Corporate Campus to Daniel Corporation
Date:3/31/2008

BIRMINGHAM, Ala., March 31 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- HealthSouth Corporation (NYSE: HLS) today announced it has finalized the sale of its corporate campus, located in Birmingham, Ala., to Daniel Corporation, a Birmingham-based, full-service real estate organization, for $43.5 million in cash and a 40% residual interest in the "Digital Hospital." In addition, HealthSouth has entered into a long-term lease arrangement with Daniel Corporation to maintain its corporate headquarters on the property. On January 23, 2008, HealthSouth announced that it had reached a definitive agreement for this sale.

The sale includes the 103-acre corporate campus and all related buildings including a 200,000 square-foot corporate headquarters building, the Cahaba Grand Conference Center, and an incomplete 13-story building formerly called the "Digital Hospital."

The sale of the corporate campus is part of the strategic repositioning of HealthSouth, first announced in August 2006, as a post-acute healthcare provider, focusing on inpatient rehabilitative and other complementary services. Proceeds from this transaction will be used to pay down a portion of the company's long-term debt.

"We are very pleased to finalize this transaction with Daniel Corporation," said HealthSouth President and CEO Jay Grinney. "This is another step in our plan to reposition HealthSouth as the preeminent provider of inpatient rehabilitative services in the U.S. The sale of this property will help us reduce corporate operating expenses, while the proceeds from the sale will be used to pay down additional debt."

Additional details of the agreement were not disclosed.
