If you have patients that require our specialized care, or have questions about what we can do for your patients we’re available 24/7.


Doctors, nurses, case managers and therapists don’t stop caring for their patients just because they’ve been discharged. Neither do we.

When patients are discharged from a traditional hospital they often need continued care. Care that offers the extended recovery time that critically, chronically ill patients need. Our interdisciplinary teams offer daily physician oversight and ICU/CCU-level staffing, helping to improve outcomes, reduce costly readmissions and help patients reach their potential.
