Select Specialty Hospital v. CHRISTUS Good Shepherd Medical Center


Foley Gardere lawyers representing Longview, Texas-based Select Specialty Hospital secured a second temporary injunction against CHRISTUS Good Shepherd Medical Center in an on-going dispute. GSMC was again ordered to continue to provide critical care services to long-term patients inside its hospital within a hospital.

Licensed as long-term acute care hospitals, Select Specialty Hospital form a national network of critical illness recovery hospitals.

Partner Ed Burbach (Picutre) filed suit on behalf of Select Specialty Hospital in June against GSMC claiming that the hospital was trying to coerce Foley client Select Specialty Hospital into ending its lease and forcing it out of the facility where the hospital had resided for 16 years by cutting off critical services to patients which GSMC is contractually obligated to provide. Select Specialty Hospital had renewed its lease through 2023.
