Medically Complex

 

Our Approach to Care

Gaylord Hospital's Complex Medical Program specializes in providing care to patients who require extended intensive medical care, usually 25-30 days. Our unique services provide physicians and their patients an effective option to fill the widening gap between short-term acute care hospitals and other discharge options. We focus on improving the lives and medical condition of patients who may be critically ill or have multiple diagnoses and need specialized daily physician and nursing care for their recovery. We also treat patients who are not yet ready to be transferred to a lower level of care, such as a skilled nursing facility or other sub-acute care. 

All our medically complex patients receive care from a team of experts. Physicians on our medical staff are board certified in a broad array of specialties including internal medicine, pulmonology, and critical care. Many of our nurses are ACLS (Advanced Cardiac Life Support) certified. These caregivers work with other members of the treatment team including nutritionists, therapists and case managers, to share information across medical disciplines and help you meet your recovery goals.
