Care That Makes A Difference: How AMG Helps Hospitals, Hospital Systems, and Payers
When your patients need extended specialized care, you need to provide them with high-quality, competent care in a facility capable of meeting their critical medical needs.
While skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) and short-term acute care hospitals (STACHs) can provide a certain level of care, sometimes more critical care patients require a longer term for stabilization or recovery. While STACHs can offer that extended length of care, the severity of your patient’s illness can require an intensity of care found only in long-term acute care hospitals (LTACHs).
What We Do / Our Specialties
Rather than keeping patients who need long-term care in an STACH, where payers, including Medicare, allot for only short-term stays, physicians can refer their patient to our facilities for high-quality, high intensity care over an extended period of time.
Our long term acute care hospitals provide continued acute-level care for patients suffering complex medical conditions, including:
- Respiratory failure
- Ventilator dependence
- Complicated infections
- Chronic non-healing wounds
- Cardiac complications
- Surgical complications
Our inpatient rehabilitation facilities provide intensive physical rehabilitation to help shorten patient recovery times for:
- Brain injury
- Amputation program
- Spinal Cord
- Gait clinic
- Rehabilitation clinic
Pulmonary & Respiratory Care
Implementing clinically proven pathways to provide services including oxygen therapy, ventilator management and weaning, and decannulation from tracheotomy from a team of highly specialized respiratory therapists
Treating complex and non-healing wounds through advanced wound care technologies and specialized wound care treatments including excisional & chemical debridement and negative pressure wound therapy
Dietary & Nutritional Care
Creating customized nutrition plans for patients through the expertise of our Registered Dietitians, and providing patients with three nutritious meals a day and snacks or supplements as directed by our physicians
Providing physical, occupational, and speech therapy from a highly specialized team of therapists and physicians, as well as 24-hour access to Registered Nurses

Improve Care For Patients To Secure Earlier Discharges and Increase Bed Days Available
Hospitals and payers who partner with AMG Ensure their patients get the quality, extended care they need – AMG Hospitals are equipped to provide ICU-level care for patients who need it most:
- Patients with multi-system failure,
- Patients with complex respiratory conditions, including the need for ventilator weaning,
- Patients requiring infectious disease management including complex wound care,
- Identify and discharge patients earlier – Hospital executives can use AMG’s LTACH algorithm to accurately identify appropriate patients faster, so the STACH can avoid readmission and reduce length of stay.
- Patients with acute renal failure or end- stage renal disease, and
- Patients with other severe illnesses
- Care for more patients by lowering length of stay – Early discharges lead to a reduced length of stay, which increases bed days available, so that more patients can be treated.
- Secure better recovery results – Quality care after discharge increases the sustainability of recovery and reduces chances of readmission, resulting in better patient experiences.
Studies show that 23.5% of patients treated in a SNF were readmitted to a hospital within 30 days and 78% of those cases were deemed as “avoidable.” By having an on-site, interdisciplinary medical team, we minimize these avoidable incidents, so you and your patients benefit from more efficient healthcare.
AMG partners with you to provide extended, intense, and individualized care for your patients’ needs.
