Select Specialty Hospital - South Dallas 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.
At Select Specialty Hospital - South Dallas, we offer care for patients who require an acute hospital stay with focused critical care nursing services for optimal recovery. Our services benefit the patients who need acute medical care for their disease or illness and are not medically ready to be transferred to a lower level of care.
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 4th floor(s) of Methodist Charlton Medical Center, which allows us seamless transition of patients.
