About Gaylord

Who We Are

Gaylord Specialty Healthcare is a 137-bed non-profit specialty hospital, also known as a long-term acute care hospital, specializing in medical management and rehabilitation for patients who have experienced an acute illness or a traumatic accident. Our average length of stay is at least 25 days. We are staffed and equipped to handle the needs of the acutely ill or chronically disabled patients who require a hospital level of care. Gaylord is able to treat individuals who need care and rehabilitation for illness or injury related to the brain and nervous system, spine, bones and joints, and lungs and other conditions. We offer both inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation and we can meet our patients' needs through every stage of recovery.

President's Message

George Kyriacou, Gaylord President and CEO

George Kyriacou
President and CEO

As a specialty or long-term acute care hospital, Gaylord is among the best in the country at helping patients recover and return to the highest quality of life. We care for the most acutely and chronically ill patients who come to Gaylord for additional care after a stay in the ICU or after a hospital discharge, and we bring together all of our clinical resources to deliver the best possible outcomes.

Our patients range from pulmonary, cardiac and cancer patients to patients with strokes, multiple sclerosis, traumatic brain injury, and spinal cord injury. And many of our patients have two or more chronic diseases or conditions. Our goal is treating the whole person, and we “think possible” by leaving no stone unturned in meeting each patient’s unique needs and goals.

Each year we benchmark our care delivery processes and patient outcomes to the best hospitals across the country. This ensures that we are continuously improving and that Gaylord’s care delivery and outcomes are among the best in the nation.

For example, our vent-weaning rate measures above 75%, a phenomenal success rate when compared to other specialty hospitals, especially considering we take only the hardest patients to wean.

Our outcomes also show that our patients have far fewer hospital readmissions and fewer emergency department experiences and that 48% of our patients return home, as opposed to returning to another facility or institution. This is a much higher rate than the national average and translates into a higher quality of life for our patients. Because Gaylord is an early adopter of new treatments and technology, we are able to offer the most advanced care for treating complex and difficult conditions while achieving excellent clinical results.

As we move into a new era in healthcare, Gaylord is extremely well positioned to demonstrate how improving clinical outcomes and providing a better quality of life for our patients can ultimately reduce future healthcare costs. This is a win-win situation for everyone.
