Long-term acute care hospitals like Select Specialty Hospital support the recovery of patients with critical illnesses. The new hospital-within-a-hospital will be staffed and operated by Select Medical, including nurses and respiratory care, clinical and support staff. The current hospital administrator, Ronnie Wagley, D.P.T., M.B.A., market CEO for Select Medical, will continue to serve as its leader. The medical staff will be a mix of UF College of Medicine faculty physicians and community physicians. UF Health Shands will contractually provide some of the hospital’s operations and support services, such as Environmental Services and Radiology Services, for efficiency and ease.
