Curahealth Stoughton provides 24/7 respiratory care from experienced therapists working under the direction of a board-certified pulmonologist.

We specialize in vent weaning, trach management (including placing speaking valves), and eventual trach removal, when appropriate.

Nutrition

Nutrition

An often overlooked but vital part of healing is nutritional support. At Curahealth Stoughton, our registered dietitian ensures that patients receive the right kind of diet for their medical needs. Patients who need alternative nutrition, such as a feeding tube or total parenteral nutrition (TPN) are closely managed to ensure adequate calorie support and an optimal balance of nutrients for healing. Our
nutritionist works closely with wound care and speech/swallow therapy to ensure that patients meet their nutritional needs.

Case Management

You’ve transitioned from the acute hospital to long-term acute care (LTAC). Now what? Patients have many options following their stay at Curahealth Stoughton. Some proceed to short term rehab for more intensive therapy once their acute medical issues have resolved; others transition to long term care; some return home, often with supportive home care to ease the transition. Regardless of what’s right for you, our case management team is here to help you with what comes next after discharge.
