What is Facility-Based Care?
Our hospitals are committed to consistently delivering high-quality health care to the patients, families, and communities we serve. Our care is delivered in a manner that is both cost-effective and non-restrictive, while maintaining the utmost respect for privacy, dignity, and individuality.
We are uniquely positioned to offer patients a safe, seamless transition from physician offices, the emergency department, skilled nursing facilities and/or home health directly to our long-term acute care hospital. Our streamlined direct admission process helps ensure continuity of care.

The LHC Group Difference
We are about Person Centered care.
LHC Group’s caring medical professionals are committed and passionate about delivering high-quality care to every patient, every time. Our interdisciplinary team of professionals meets regularly to formulate, review, and update each patient’s individualized plan of care. And we include the family in development of each plan of care to help ensure we meet goals and expectations.
We Care About People
Because people are far more than their medical conditions.
We are about Person Centered care. That means knowing the people we serve, understanding their needs, and tailoring healthcare to ensure the best journey possible.
We Provide the Best Care Available
And are passionately committed to making it better every day.
We lead the industry in quality ratings but that is not enough for us. We’re committed to establishing a new standard of clinical excellence and outstanding service in all we do.
We Embrace the Communities We Serve
Because the best care happens where in the context of strong relationships.
We empower our clinicians and staff to build the kind of relationships in our communities that ensure quality, consistency, and stability in all that we do.
