Select Specialty Hospital - St. Louis 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 - St. Louis is a 33-bed Long-Term Acute Care Hospital within a hospital located inside of St. Joseph's Health Center. We utilize protocol-driven Clinical Management throughout our hospital, treating patients through evidence-based medicine. The Medical Director, along with the Interdisciplinary Team, meet weekly to discuss the individualized patient care and progression made with each patient. Interdisciplinary care is driven by the Physicians, Case Management, Critical Care Nursing, Wound Ostomy Care (Certified) RNs, Respiratory Therapy, Rehabilitation (Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Speech Therapy), Dietary.
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 1A and 1B Unit floor(s) of St. Joseph Health Center, which allows us seamless transition of patients.
