Compassionate Care. Intensive Treatment.
Caring for patients with specialized needs.
What is an LTACH?
A Long Term Acute Care Hospital (LTACH) serves the needs of patients with medically complex conditions, especially those suffering from multisystem complications and needing extended recovery times – a hospital stay that is often 25 days or more. A patient is usually admitted after a short-term, acute-care hospital stay. After care in an LTACH, many patients are then able to transition from the LTACH to acute rehab, skilled nursing or go home. Hospice care is also a post-acute treatment option for patients with a terminal disease who have a life expectancy of six months or less.
As an LTACH, Tyler ContinueCARE Hospital develops a continuum of care between the acute and long-term phases of a patient’s illness.
Our innovative and distinctive physician-driven approach allows us to bring new meaning to the “hospital-within-a-hospital” model. As a separate, fully licensed and staffed hospital, we are able to provide intensive and complex medical treatment to patients requiring longer lengths of stay for acute-care.
We have specialty programs designed to meet the needs of long term, acutely ill patients with conditions including ventilator dependence, respiratory failure, chronic pulmonary problems, complex and severe wounds, and infections requiring long term antibiotic therapy. LTACH facilities also provide physical, occupational, speech and nutritional therapies, as well as pain management.
Patients and families are invited to attend our weekly interdisciplinary team conference where patient goals are reviewed each week. Patients and families may also request to meet with the team at a more convenient time.
