Extended, Post-Acute Care is Helping Patients Recover More Often and Reducing Readmissions for Hospitals
When the highest quality patient care is given, hospitals, payers, and patients win. Patients lose less quality of life and regain independence, while hospitals and payers reduce the chance of readmission, avoid troublesome transfers, and discharge patients earlier.
The ICU-level care we provide for patients can help an STACH discharge patients earlier without fear of readmissions. By shortening the average length of stay, an STACH avoids 30-day readmission penalties, opens up more beds, and treats DRGs in a more consistent, effective way.
At North Alabama Specialty Hospital, we partner with hospitals and payers to provide first-rate care so that patients recover quickly and more permanently.
The Most Efficient Path to Healing
As a part of a Top-5 Post-Acute Care Hospital System, our critical illness recovery hospital is known to provide better extended term, post-acute care. That’s because our goal as a healthcare provider is to help patients travel the straightest road possible between their illness and their recovery.
At North Alabama Specialty Hospital, our ability to provide intense rehabilitation, high nurse-to-patient ratios, and daily specialist access translates to fewer readmissions and a better, more efficient recovery for patients.
Our ventilator wean rate surpasses the national average, and stands as another example of how our patients move forward through their recoveries, without unnecessary delays.
With North Alabama Specialty Hospital, your patients can move forward in their journey toward recovery.

How Helping Patients Help Your Bottom Line
When you have patients who require critical care for extended periods of time, you need a trusted partner that you know will provide them with the same high-quality care you provide.
While SNFs are often used to treat critically ill patients, a long term acute care hospital (LTACH) is uniquely suited to not only care for patients with complex medical conditions, but to also provide the rehabilitation required to end their inpatient care as soon as possible.
With low nurse-to-patient ratios, ICU-level care, and daily specialist access, patients at AMG long term acute care hospitals (LTACH) are less likely to require readmission than patients of a SNF. This ensures everyone from the patient to the hospital and payer wins. Let us help you provide high-quality care.
