Facility-Based Care

At LHC Group long-term acute care hospitals, we care for medically complex patients who require intense, specialized treatment for an extended period of time.


What is Facility-Based Care?

Our interdisciplinary team of clinicians delivers a careful balance of specialized medical care and compassionate, personalized attention.

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.

Types of services we provide:
  • Telemetry/cardiac monitoring
  • Respiratory therapy
  • Ventilator management and weaning
  • Antibiotic therapy
  • Wound care, including the use of negative pressure wound therapy
  • Hyperbarics
  • Nutritional assessment and support
  • Case management
  • Discharge planning
  • Patient education
  • Therapy services (physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy)
