Patient Care

Long-term acute-care hospitals provide almost all of the same services that you would expect to find in a traditional acute-care hospital. In fact, because LTACHs are specialty hospitals, they provide many treatment modalities that are not usually found in rehabilitation hospitals, nursing homes, or other healthcare models.

At Riverside Hospital we provide more RNs, LPNs, therapists and CNAs per patient to enhance the attention and treatment you or your loved one receives while hospitalized. This is vital to proper care for the patient that needs more time to fully recover from an illness. In addition to more personnel per patient, we also offer these services.
