Frequently Asked Questions

  • When you leave a traditional hospital, you may need continued care to recover completely. Our hospitals, certified as long-term acute care hospitals, offer the same in-depth care you would receive in a traditional hospital or intensive care unit, but for an extended recovery period. 

    We partner with your physician and offer 24-hour clinical care seven days a week so you can start your journey to wellness.

  • The goal of a traditional hospital is to diagnose and stabilize your condition to help you recover as quickly as possible after pressing health issues – emergencies brought on by illness or an accident—for usually a few days or a week. 

    However, sometimes a quick recovery is unrealistic – you may be too sick or otherwise medically complex and need specialized care and extended recovery time. In that case, you need a transitional care hospital, also known as a long-term hospital. 

  • You might be referred to us if you: 

    • Are dependent upon a ventilator or other technology for regular breathing
    • Have medically complex conditions such as pulmonary disease, neurological deficits, cardiac disease, renal (kidney) failure requiring dialysis, wound care, infectious diseases or complications following surgery
    • Have simultaneous chronic conditions or multi-system organ failure with significant loss of independence
    • Need extended care or recovery time after a traditional hospital stay

    Our goal is to help you efficiently transition to the next step of your treatment plan to regain your independence through specialized transitional care.

  • When you are ready to leave our hospital, we will help you find an option for the next level of care:

    • Home health
    • Acute rehabilitation hospital
    • Inpatient rehabilitation hospitals 
    • Skilled nursing centers
    • Subacute units
    • Assisted living facilities
    • Any applicable outpatient services
