What is a Long Term ICU?
Long Term ICU also known as a Long-Term Acute Care Hospital is an acute care center which specializes in the treatment of patients who require a longer hospital stay and prolonged mechanical ventilation to recover from complex medical conditions. Long Term ICU’s focus their resources at a limited number of specialized critical care treatments with minimal overhead to be able to provide cost-effective quality ICU care. The average length of stay at a Long Term ICU is 25 days or longer.

What is the Need for a Long Term ICU?
The high cost of critical care has made it difficult for chronically ill patients to continue quality ICU care for a prolonged period. Due to financial constraints, patients requiring long term medical care are referred from ICU’s of corporate hospitals to small nursing homes without proper ICU facilities. The quality of care is not continued thus causing harm to the patient and the initial effort put in by the critical care doctors is lost.
Long Term ICU is a center for such patients where the quality of ICU care is continued at affordable prices and the treatment connect of the patient with their primary hospital and doctor is continued.
