 NEWTON, Mass., July 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Health and Rehabilitation Properties Trust (NYSE: HRP) today announced that in June it acquired three long-term care facilities and related improvement loans pursuant to a previously announced Option Agreement with SAFECARE Company, Inc. and SCIT, Inc., both subsidiaries of SAFECO Corporation (NASDAQ: SAFC). The purchase price of the facilities including the related improvement loans was $5,778,000. The three facilities are leased to tenants operating a total of 428 beds located in Grove City, Ohio (200 beds), Council Bluffs, Iowa (108 beds), and St. Joseph, Mo. (120 beds).
 The facilities are subject to existing leases which have initial terms expiring between 1995 and 2001. The leases have several renewal options.
