"LifeCare Hospitals was the first place able to heal my wounds."

Our Unique Healing Environment
Our unique focus on body, mind and soul – coupled with an emphasis on early and aggressive intervention – often results in improved outcomes for the most critically ill patients.
Our hospitals focus primarily on the care of medically complex patients who require intensive, round-the-clock treatment for an extended period of time. Many of our patients are transferred to our hospitals after a stay in an intensive care unit and have often experienced multiple system failures and slow response to traditional medical treatments.
To address the needs of this very special population, we provide a full complement of on-site treatment and diagnostic services with a delivery focus that improves a patient’s response to treatment. Our hospitals are staffed with Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS)-certified nurses and respiratory therapists. 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, dieticians and case managers.
