Job Description

What is a Long Term Acute Care Hospital (LTACH)?

Long Term Acute Care Hospitals (LTACHs) are designed to focus on patients with serious and complex medical conditions that require intense specialized treatment for an extended period of recovery time. An LTACH is an acute care specialty hospital that provides highly advanced and intensively focused care for higher acuity patients who have not responded to short-term treatment in traditional general hospitals. In addition, an LTACH average length of stay is 25 days as compared to a 3-5 day average in a general hospital. Whereas, nursing homes offer less intensive or sub-acute services typically after a general hospital or LTACH stay. Fundamentally, patients appropriate for LTACHs include those who may be ventilator dependent, suffering from multi-organ failure or deep wound ulcerations.
