What is a LTACH?

LTACHs are designed to focus on patients with serious and complex medical conditions that require intensive specialized treatment for an extended period of recovery time.

How does a LTACH differ from a General Hospital or a Nursing Home?

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 LTACHs 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.
