Extended Critical Illness Recovery when You or Your Loved One Need(s) It Most

After a serious injury, illness, or surgery, the average hospital stay allowed by insurance providers can be as little as just four to five days. In order to make a full recovery and regain at-home independence, many patients will require more care and rehabilitation.

Long Term Acute Care Hospitals like AMG Specialty Hospital – Zachary exist to provide this extended, high-level of care so that you or your loved one gets the attention, care, and time you need to regain your independence or transition to the next level of care.

If you or your loved one need critical care like wound care or vent weaning, you’ll find yourself in good hands with AMG. Being a smaller, boutique-size hospital, we are able to monitor our patients more closely and develop closer relationships with our patients and family members.

The Numbers

Unlike a skilled nursing facility (SNF), long term acute care hospitals provide the same level of care you receive in a traditional hospital. With a better nurse-to-patient ratio, more nursing hours per day, private rooms, and access to specialists, you receive a higher quality of care than in a SNF. At AMG Specialty Hospital – Zachary, you’ll always receive a higher quality of care, so you can recover more fully.
