Specialty Hospital is a Long Term Acute Care hospital, meeting the needs
of the medically complex patients in our community.
Some patients are not "sick enough" to remain in a short term
acute hospital, but require more hospitalization before they can safely
return home. That's where the Long Term Acute Care Hospital comes in.
Dedicated to a holistic, team approach to patient care, we treat patients
with a wide range of problems, including
- Respiratory Failure/Ventilators
- Cardiovascular Diseases/Telemetry
- Complicated Infections/Long-term IV antibiotics
- Uncontrolled Diabetes
- Non-healing wounds
- Surgical complications
