Mercy Hospital and Kindred created a joint venture to develop, own and operate Mercy Rehabilitation Hospital, a freestanding, inpatient rehabilitation hospital that opened in 2006. Mercy Hospital contributed the assets of its existing rehabilitation unit to the joint venture and Kindred contributed the necessary resources to develop and initially fund the hospital. Ownership interests in joint venture partnerships are determined by the relative value of each party's contribution. The hospital is governed by a managing board comprised of members from both Mercy Hospital and Kindred. The medical leadership of the hospital was nominated by Mercy Hospital and the day-to-day operations of the rehabilitation hospital are administered by Kindred through a management agreement. The rehabilitation hospital provides nursing and therapy services as well as medical oversight and direction, but most ancillary clinical services such as lab and radiology were purchased by the joint venture from Mercy Hospital, through an ancillary services agreement. Profits of the joint venture are distributed on a pro rata basis with each partner's ownership interest.
