Compassionate Care. Intensive Treatment.

Caring for patients with specialized needs.

What is an LTACH?

LTACH stands for Long-Term Acute Care Hospital. We are a specialized hospital that provides care for patients who require extended hospitalization for complex medical conditions. Tyler ContinueCARE Hospital is designed to care for patients who are too sick for a regular hospital, but not sick enough for a traditional long-term care facility or nursing home.

Some key characteristics of LTACH hospitals are:

  • Complex Medical Conditions: LTACHs typically care for patients who have multiple, serious medical conditions such as respiratory failure, ventilator dependence, complex wound care needs, sepsis, or other critical illnesses.
  • Extended Hospitalization: Patients in LTACHs often require an extended length of stay, typically longer than a traditional acute care hospital. This could range from several weeks to months, depending on the patient’s condition and recovery.
  • Intensive Care: LTACHs provide a higher level of intensive care compared to other types of facilities. They often have specialized units such as intensive care units (ICUs) and step-down units to monitor and treat patients closely.
  • Specialized Services: These hospitals have specialized medical staff and equipment to manage complex conditions. This includes respiratory therapy, wound care, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and other specialized services tailored to the patient’s needs.
  • Transitional Care: LTACHs often serve as a bridge between acute care hospitals and lower levels of care such as skilled nursing facilities or home care. They focus on stabilizing patients and preparing them for the next phase of their recovery or care plan.
  • Collaborative Care Teams: Patient care in LTACHs is provided by a multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals, including physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and case managers. The team works together to develop and implement individualized care plans for each patient.

Overall, Tyler ContinueCARE Hospital plays a crucial role in the healthcare system by providing specialized care for patients with complex medical needs who require extended hospitalization. We aim to improve patient outcomes, enhance quality of life, and facilitate a smooth transition to the next level of care.
