We’re sure there are no risks or they wouldn’t go ahead. Right?

Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, UCLA Health System and long-term care provider Select Medical announced today a partnership to open a 138-bed acute-care rehabilitation hospital in Century City in 2015. The aim “is to develop a world-class regional rehabilitation center providing highly specialized care, advanced treatment and leading-edge technologies to treat individuals with spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, strokes, amputations, neurological disorders, and musculoskeletal and orthopedic conditions,” a statement said…

The new facility will be operated by Select Medical, a provider of long- term acute care services with hospital and outpatient locations in 44 states, including at the Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation in New Jersey…

Earlier this year, a feasibility study found that seismic retrofitting would enable the former Century City Hospital to meet seismic safety standards and licensure requirements to be operated as a rehabilitation hospital, the statement said. The building’s current owner has begun infrastructure and modernization work to bring the building up to standards. The preparation work will be completed in 2015 and allow occupancy until 2030, according to the statement.
