Long-Term Care

Our five long-term care facilities provide 24-hour care for our patients. There may be a number of reasons why you need a long-term care facility. Some of our patients need rehabilitation following an accident or surgery. Others are elderly patients who need a residential nursing facility. And others have long-term disabilities that require a skilled level of nursing care for daily activities. Our healthcare teams will work with you and your family to make the right choice for you. We will help you every step of the way, from the admissions process through treatment and care. We work with our patients and their families to foster each individual’s ability and independence.

Long-Term Care in New York City

Our long-term Acute Care Hospitals (LTACH) are designed, equipped and staffed to provide specialized clinical support around the clock. This includes physicians on site at all times, and sub-specialty care that is always accessible, including pulmonologists, infectious disease specialists, cardiologists, and a full complement of clinical support services such as clinical labs, radiology, respiratory care and pharmacy. The long-term acute care hospital will serve high acuity, medically fragile patients, many of whom require ventilator support, and patients with multiple chronic medical conditions that significantly impact life functioning, such as respiratory failure, congestive heart failure, uncontrolled diabetes, complex infections and complex wounds.
