HRPT RESPONDS TO UNUSUALLY LARGE TRADING VOLUME

 HRPT RESPONDS TO UNUSUALLY LARGE TRADING VOLUME
 NEWTON, Mass., Feb. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- In response to reports


of unusually large trading volume in its shares, Mark Finkelstein, president of Health and Rehabilitation Properties Trust (NYSE: HRP), commented as follows: "Although we are uncertain as to the precise reasons for the large trading volume in our shares, we believe it may be related to the Congressional oversight hearing conducted on Feb. 19, 1992, by the House Government Operations Subcommittee on Human Resources and Intergovernmental Relations which focused on the rehabilitation industry. We understand that the Subcommittee heard testimony from former employees in the rehabilitation industry, relatives of patients, and certain goverment and private experts but did not hear testimony from any providers. During the hearing, a health care provider which operates certain properties owned or financed by HRP and other health care providers unaffiliated with HRP were discussed and criticized. The company intends to review any report generated by the House Subcommittee. We do not believe that the Subcommittee's hearing will have any effect on the ability of HRP's tenants to make all payments due to the company."
 HRP is a real estate investment trust headquartered in Newton, Mass. HRP shares are listed on the New York Stock Exchange.
