We take great pride in serving the Paducah community. Paducah is the largest city in the Jackson Purchase region, but yet still has that small town feel.
Our facility is licensed under Medicare as a long-term acute care hospital, providing care for critically ill and medically complex patients who require a longer acute care stay than a traditional hospital. There are several criteria patients must meet for admission eligibility.
We offer financial assistance to patients who have an economic need and meet the qualifications of our financial assistance policy.
We understand that pricing and billing for healthcare services can be confusing, so we provide our standard price lists to help families better anticipate and understand their financial responsibilities.
Frequently Asked Questions
We review each situation on a case-by-case basis.
Traditional hospitals are designed to diagnose and stabilize individuals with acute medical problems. Typically, most patients aren’t expected to stay in the hospital for an extended length of stay. However, the ones that need more time to recover in a hospital setting for management of complex medical issues are referred to a LTACH. The LTACH was created for the patients that needed a longer recovery time. We specialize in treating patients with multiple, complex issues such as respiratory, cardiac, neurological, infectious disease, wounds and multi-system failure.
Choosing an LTACH
