LifeCare Family of Hospitals Emerges From Chapter 11

Sale to senior lenders positions long term acute care hospital company for future growth

PLANO, Texas, June 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Hospital Acquisition LLC (the Company), the parent company of LifeCare Holdings LLC and the LifeCare family of hospitals, announced today it has completed its purchase of substantially all of the assets of LCI Holdco, LLC, and emerged from the Chapter 11 bankruptcy process.

The $320 million sale, which was approved by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware, results in a significant reduction in debt at lower interest rates. The Company's new credit facility includes a $200 million term loan and access to a $30 million working capital line of credit.

LifeCare's Plano-based management team, representing some of the most experienced healthcare executives in the post acute space, will continue to lead the Company.

"We move forward from this process with a restructured balance sheet, a talented leadership team and the support of a strong and experienced board," said LifeCare Holdings Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Phillip B. Douglas. "With the support of our corporate team and the continued trust of referrers, vendors and suppliers in the communities we serve, we emerge from this process as a stronger hospital system."

Comprised of 26 long term acute hospitals located across the United States, the LifeCare family of hospitals specializes in caring for patients in need of high level, acute care over an extended period of time. Many patients are transferred to the Company's hospitals after a stay in an intensive care unit and have often experienced multiple system failures and slow response to traditional medical treatments.

"With a greatly improved debt structure, the Company's financial position now better reflects the clinical strength we consistently achieve on the hospital level," said Douglas.  "We achieved impressive operational performance in the first quarter and are positioned to continue to lead our industry space in clinical outcomes and quality excellence."

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
