Post-Acute Care

The best part of serving our patients is helping them to heal and return to everyday life. Sometimes that can mean additional care beyond the hospital setting.

What is Post-Acute Care?

Post-acute care refers to the care services you may receive when transitioning from a hospital stay. Not all people need additional services; some will need only follow-up with their primary care physicians. Post-acute care may be recommended after hospitalization for a serious medical condition, complex problem, or serious/traumatic injury where more long-term follow-up is necessary.
