Select Specialty Hospital - Downriver combines the specialized expertise of a large hospital with the personalized attention of a smaller setting.
Occasionally, patients in the hospital have a need for a longer acute care stay due to their illness, multiple injuries, trauma, or medical complications. The unique medical needs of these types of patients require more intensive, focused hospital care for optimal recovery. Select Specialty Hospitals are designed specifically to meet the needs of these types of extended acute care patients.
Select Specialty Hospital - Downriver is a state licensed, CMS regulated and JCAHO accredited hospital serving the metro area south of Detroit. We employ a dedicated team of interdisciplinary health care providers to deliver quality and compassionate care to our patients. We focus on medically complex and catastrophically ill patients and are committed to achieving optimal outcomes for our patients.
Each patient is also assigned a case manager who will guide their case from admission through discharge. The case manager is available to answer questions, assist with insurance and to plan a safe, timely and appropriate discharge. Select Specialty Hospitals are Medicare certified and accredited by the Joint Commission. We participate with most major health insurers.
We are located on the 2nd floor(s) of Oakwood - Heritage Hospital, which allows us seamless transition of patients.
