Rehabilitation Services at LTAC - Downtown Decatur
Our Long Term Acute Care (LTAC) specializes in the treatment of medically complex, catastrophically injured or critically ill patients who require a longer hospital stay than at a traditional acute care facility, and who require specialized, expert care and rehabilitation. Our unique expertise allows patients to recover without strict time limits— typically 20 to 30 days.
Our physician-led team of nurses, respiratory and physical therapists, occupational and speech therapists, case managers and dietitians collaboratively apply their expertise to each patient for the best possible outcome. Our goal is to return patients to their highest-functioning level.
LTAC began in 1996 with 19 beds. Since then, we’ve grown to 40 beds, including a six-bed Special Care Unit (SCU). All rooms are private, ensuring that patients experience maximum comfort during their stay.
LTAC at Downtown Decatur is Georgia's first hospital to earn a Center of Excellence designation and Gold Seal disease-specific certification for wound care treatment from the Joint Commission (2010) - also the nation's first and only hospital to earn the Joint Commission's Gold Seal disease-specific certification for the treatment of patients on ventilators who are diagnosed with respiratory failure.
