"The day before my husband was to be released from LifeCare, he turned to me and said he knew he had been given a second chance at life. For this reason our family will be forever grateful to the doctors, nurses, therapists and staff of LifeCare, whom my husband now refers to as his 'angels'."
-Sharon from Texas
Improving the lives of people with severe illness or injury takes more than skill and compassion - it takes innovation.
A national leader in long term acute care, LifeCare was built on the belief that early and aggressive intervention, coupled with a personalized treatment plan that encompasses body, mind and soul, can maximize a patient's potential for recovery.
Our multi-disciplinary treatment teams are directed by highly-trained, committed physicians and include healthcare professionals involved in all aspects of a patient's care: nurses, respiratory therapists, physical medicine specialists, radiologists, pharmacists, dietitians and case managers.
Our philosophy has impacted the lives of thousands of LifeCare patients, resulting in improved outcomes, shorter hospital stays and more cost-effective treatment.
Based in Plano, Texas, the LifeCare Family of Hospitals includes both freestanding and "hospital-in-hospital" acute care hospitals designed to treat medically complex patients who require acute care hospital services for an extended period of time. Currently, our network includes 24 hospitals in nine states.
