“It’s incredibly exciting and humbling to deliver even more aging Americans the services, amenities and attention they deserve so they can get well and get home,” said Mainstreet Founder and CEO Zeke Turner in a written statement. “Our best-in-class Next Generation® properties are proudly transforming the health care industry nationwide with our focus on innovative design and hospitality-oriented care.”

Genesis HealthCare launched PowerBack Rehabilitation in 2012 in response to the market demand for shorter, post-hospital recovery periods and fewer post-discharge setbacks.

Construction began on PowerBack Rehabilitation in Lafeyette, located at 329 Exempla Circle, in December 2013. Mainstreet developed the property and Genesis is leasing and operating it.
