Long-term acute care (LTAC)

Curahealth Hospitals Logo

Curahealth is a leading long-term acute care (LTAC) hospital system in the US.

Our 10 hospitals provide specialized, goal-oriented care for critically ill patients who require extended recovery time. Curahealth Hospitals are Medicare-certified to support a longer length of stay — usually weeks, not days — as compared to the typical five-day stay for patients in traditional hospitals.

Most people never expect to need long-term acute care.

Fortunately, Curahealth long-term acute care (LTAC) hospitals are available for those who do need further treatment following a stay in a traditional hospital. The kind of care we offer is often the critical element that can start patients on their journey to wellness. Studies have found that chronically critically ill and medically complex patients who receive care in an LTAC hospital experience outcomes that are as good or better than those of similar patients treated in other settings.
