Meeting Today’s Complex Pulmonary Needs through LTACH Expertise

Compounded by the COVID-19 pandemic and flu season, providers and payors have sought new strategies to address respiratory failure. For patients experiencing respiratory failure conditions, such as acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), specialized acute care after the initial hospital stay is proving to play a critical role in improving patient outcomes, reducing readmissions, and decreasing the severity of long-term effects.


Long-term acute care hospitals are often the most appropriate recovery setting for complex pulmonary patients, as they are licensed acute-care providers, with physician-directed teams specializing in the care and rehabilitation of patients on mechanical ventilation. LTACHs can provide the optimal level of care for lasting patient recovery and for reducing STACH readmissions.
