Many of our patients arrive at Select Specialty Hospital with multiple infections, a high incidence of resistant organisms, and an increased risk for new and recurrent infections. The infection may be related to critical or chronic illness, inadequate nutrition, multiple organ dysfunction, or post-surgical complications. We focus on resolving the infection while meeting the patient’s additional medical needs.
In Select Specialty Hospital's smaller environment, we are able to give our patients their best chance of recovery by providing early and aggressive nursing and respiratory care. We combine that care with nutritional support, medication management, and rehabilitation therapies. Our Infectious Disease Program uses evidence-based protocols which are highly effective and consistent with or exceed national guidelines.
By combining experience, state-of-the-art technology and unparalleled training, our doctors, nurses and therapists provide a team approach for those with complex medical conditions requiring an extended hospital stay.
