Acute Care is for patients who are suffering from serious injuries, disease, illnesses, or medical conditions, or who are may be recovering from major surgery.
Admission into our acute care unit involves treatment for multiple diagnosis with new onset of illness’s, ongoing long-term illnesses and for patients who are suffering from other extreme medical complications that need immediate care. While acute care stays may involve some level of intensive treatment, this pattern of care is usually shorter in its duration.
