Select Specialty Hospital - Wichita 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 - Wichita, our experienced respiratory department specializes in difficult ventilator weaning. We provide specialized care for those patients with continued medical problems who are not yet able to tolerate intense rehabilitation therapy. We have an aggressive interdisciplinary team approach including PT, OT, ST, RT working closely with our nursing staff, to return patients to maximum functional independence.
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 5SW & 6SW floor(s) of Via Christi Reigonal Medical, St. Francis Campus, which allows us seamless transition of patients.
