At Northern Colorado Long Term Acute Hospital, we provide long-term acute care services to patients who are recovering from serious illnesses or injuries and often require additional critical care services for medically complex conditions. We consider it a privilege to be able to offer this advanced care to the area and are honored to be a vital part of our community.
At Northern Colorado Long Term Acute Hospital we provide long-term acute care services to patients who are recovering from serious illnesses or injuries. Often these individuals require additional critical care services for medically complex conditions such as trauma, brain injuries, infectious diseases, wound healing, cardiovascular disease, stroke, amputations, respiratory failure and more.
Our medical professionals work as a team to provide more intensive services to our patients than what is normally provided in an acute hospital setting. Our long-term acute care team consists of physicians, nurses, therapists, specialists, pharmacists and other highly trained medical professionals. It is led by our full-time medical director.
We tailor our medical services to the complex needs of our patients, creating a personalized plan of care that is guided by the patient’s attending physician and coordinated with consulting specialists when necessary.
Our patients receive 24-hour nursing and respiratory care services with daily physician management.
Other services we provide include:
•Speech, memory and cognitive therapy
•On-Site Laboratory Services
•Aquatic therapy water-based treatments
In addition, we offer support groups for patients and caregivers to expand treatment and to allow those with common challenges to share experiences, explore resources, encourage one another, and to help teach each other how to best navigate their circumstances.
Why Long Term Acute Care?
Most people who need inpatient hospital services are admitted to an “acute care” hospital for a relatively short amount of time. But patients with medically complex conditions may be referred to a long-term acute care (LTACH) — which is also certified as an acute hospital — for continued care beyond their original hospital stay. LTACHs specialize in treating patients who may have more than one serious condition, but who may improve with time and care and return home.
At Northern Colorado Rehabilitation Hospital, we provide inpatient rehabilitation to people recovering from disabling diseases and injuries, such as strokes, orthopedic, brain, and spinal cord injuries. In addition, we treat individuals who may have chronic illnesses such as cerebral palsy, ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease), multiple sclerosis or Parkinson’s disease. We provide our patients with 24-hour rehabilitation nursing care and daily physician management. Our staff works as a team with our patients and their family members to create individualized treatment plans so our patients can progress at their own ability levels.
Our medical team is led by a full-time medical director and includes specially trained physicians, nurses, case managers, and occupational, speech and physical therapists – among other medical professionals. Members of our staff have voluntarily earned—and continue to maintain—advanced certifications within the rehabilitation field. This provides them with in-depth knowledge and proficiency to provide exceptional care to our patients.
These certifications include:
•Neuro-IFRAH certifications to treat and manage adults who have suffered brain injuries or strokes.
•Certified Registered Rehabilitation Nurse certifications that validate professional standing, experience, and knowledge in care management and treatment in rehabilitation.
