Date:10/5/2010

surrounding communities and we look forward to providing that care. Additionally, we are pleased to be opening a new hospital at the Suburban Campus enabling us to provide a broad array of services to the patients and families in the North Hills Community."

Collectively, LifeCare Hospitals' three Pittsburgh locations will retain a total of 196 long term acute care beds in a private room setting. LifeCare specializes in the treatment of medically complex patients who require extended hospitalization. Many of our patients are transferred to LifeCare after a stay in an intensive care unit and have often experienced multiple system failures and slow response to traditional medical treatments. Each of the hospital campuses will provide 24-hour physician coverage, an aggressive ventilator weaning program and advanced wound care. The reallocation of resources across the LifeCare network will provide an opportunity to serve 118 patients at Main Campus, 37 patients at Suburban Campus and up to 41 patients at the Alle-Kiski location.

LifeCare will continue to care for patients and accept referrals throughout the transition period.  Physicians and case managers with possible referrals, and families with interest in LifeCare's services, should contact 412-247-2365 for intake and admissions information.

LifeCare Hospitals of Pittsburgh recently earned the Quality Respiratory Care Recognition (QRCR) award from the American Association for Respiratory Care (AARC), placing LifeCare in an elite group of only 15 percent of hospitals in the United States that have received this honor.

LifeCare Hospitals of Pittsburgh is part of the LifeCare family of hospitals, which includes 20 specialty acute care hospitals in nine states.
