What is a LTAC Hospital


LTAC stands for Long-Term Acute Care. LTAC Hospitals play a very important role in health care. Our hospital accommodates patients that often have very few alternative options. They are critically ill and/or have multi-system complications or failure which require hospitalization for an extended period of time.  We specialize in long-term care and recovery times that many traditional acute care hospitals are not outfitted for.

Characteristics of an LTACH:

  • The average length of stay is 25 days or longer.
  • Individualized treatment plans carried out by multidisciplinary teams including physicians.
  • Daily MD visits for all patients.

We treat each of our patients according to individualized plans with detailed case management. Our physcians are on-site daily to review progress and consult staff specialists.
