"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

LifeCare Hospitals of Wisconsin

LifeCare Hospitals of Wisconsin is a 75,000-square-foot specialty hospital built specifically to treat medically complex and critically ill patients requiring extended, acute care hospitalization.

Our facility has 62 licensed beds and offers private rooms for all patients. This includes a 10-bed intensive care unit (ICU) and four specially designed bariatric rooms. The hospital also features a rehabilitation gym, on-site pharmacy, in-house radiology and the LifeCare Center for Advanced Wound Healing which offers the latest in technological advances, including hyperbaric oxygen therapy.  We are accredited by The Joint Commission and Medicare certified.  We accept Medicare, Medicaid and also work with a multitude of different commercial insurance plans.

We are passionate about giving our patients the best chance at recovery from acute injury or illness by providing early and aggressive intervention in a critical care setting.  Our treatment team includes physicians, nurses, pharmacists, dietitians and therapists across a range of disciplines — physical, speech, occupational, respiratory and psychosocial therapy.  We believe this intra-disciplinary approach helps speed physical, emotional and spiritual recovery.

We embrace each of our patients as individuals with a personal history and unique health situation and provide the compassion, support and nurturing necessary to achieve optimal recovery.  One example of this is the initial care coordination team conference which is led by an RN case manager assigned to each patient.  This meeting is held within 72 hours of admission and is designed to address the patient’s individual needs though a specific plan of care that is coordinated with their entire treatment team, the patient / family and financial payor source when needed.

Our clinical expertise includes:
 

  • Comprehensive multi-specialty medical staff including in-house overnight physician coverage to address any emergency situation
  • Trans-disciplinary teams which include various physician specialties, wound / ostomy / continence nurses, certified nutritional support dietitian, pharmacists and physical / speech / occupational and psychosocial therapy
  • Nursing staff comprised of critical care-trained and Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) certified nurses
  • Experienced respiratory therapy team onsite 24/7, including Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) certified therapists
  • Hospital level radiology department (X-rays / CAT Scans) with 24/7 radiologist coverage
  • State-of-the-art wound care program directed by physicians and certified wound clinicians specializing in wound care.  Our team utilizes a “sponge-based” wound VAC system and on-site hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO) when clinically appropriate.  Transparent acrylic / private hyperbaric chambers provide patients with individualized HBO therapy monitored by certified physicians / HBOT technicians who are present throughout each treatment. For those that suffer from chronic or non-healing wounds, or sores that have not improved during the course of conventional treatment, patients may be referred by a Physician or they can call and make an appointment themselves.

We invite you to visit our facility and personally experience the warm and caring environment.  Our staff welcomes the opportunity to share with you the superior clinical outcomes that have been achieved.
