Understanding Long Term Acute Care
Recovery can’t be rushed when a person’s whole being is challenged by an aggressive illness or life-changing injury – while coping with chronic complications. WellStar gives patients who have already overcome tremendous health issues the opportunity to continue healing at a pace and place designed for extended acute care.
By focusing entirely on Long Term Acute Care (LTAC), we can devote individualized attention to providing better outcomes to patients who require acute hospital care for a stay of 25 days or more.
The Specialty Center at WellStar Windy Hill Hospital is a dedicated LTAC program that offers an advanced clinical and rehabilitation team led by physician experts who specialize in this high-level of acute care.
Our outcomes and our expertise have earned the respect of referring physicians and hospitals throughout Metro Atlanta and beyond. They recognize our outstanding program and send their most critical patients here to achieve their highest level of functioning.
We welcome families and caregivers as a part of the LTAC team. And, we encourage you to take an active role in your loved one’s recovery. WellStar understands that this can be a difficult time for families, too. That is why we offer comfortable patient rooms, liberal visiting hours, a relaxed family area - even free parking.
