Hello and welcome to our blog,

We are excited to introduce our new website and blog to you and your family.

We are dedicated to providing useful health and medical information to our community. It’s our goal to blog about topics that are relevant and helpful for you and your family.

LTAC stands for “Long Term Acute Care”, and refers to the type of service our hospitals provide.

LTAC hospitals focus their services on high acuity, medically complex patients who have serious medical problems that require intensive and specialized hospital care for an extended period, typically 20 to 30 days.

Many of our patients are transferred to us from Intensive Care Units in traditional hospitals. It is not uncommon for them to have a secondary underlying disease, such as heart disease or diabetes, which may delay their healing process.

We welcome your feedback and if you would like us to discuss a certain topic, please feel free to email Lisa Bien, Vice President, Communications at LBien@AcuityHealthcare.net.

We thank you and look forward to hearing from you.
