Long Term Acute Care Hospitals (LTACHs) fill an important role in the continuum of patient care and address the needs of a small, but growing patient population who cannot be effectively treated in conventional healthcare settings.

Patients are referred to Advanced Specialty Hospitals of Toledo for the continuation of acute medical care because of the severity and complexity of their conditions which precludes them from being accepted into a rehabilitation hospital or a skilled nursing facility or going home with Home Health Service.

Why wouldn’t I stay at a short-term hospital?

The goal of a traditional hospital is to diagnose and stabilize your condition to help you recover as quickly as possible. However, sometimes a quick recovery is unrealistic when you are too sick or otherwise medically complex and need specialized care and extended recovery time. In that case, you need a transitional care hospital, also known as a long-term acute care hospital (LTACH).

What are long-term acute care hospitals?

Long-term acute care hospitals (LTACHs) are facilities that specialize in the treatment of patients with serious medical conditions that require care on an ongoing basis but no longer require intensive care or extensive diagnostic procedures. These patients are typically discharged from the intensive care units and require more care than they can receive in a rehabilitation center, skilled nursing facility or at home as these patients need daily physician rounds, frequent lab tests and daily care by registered nurses.

Types of patients we care for at a LTACH include but not limited to:
