Select Specialty Hospital - Spectrum Health provides the specialized expertise of a large hospital with the personalized attention of a small hospital. Our long-term acute care hospital (LTACH) serves patients with complex medical needs requiring longer hospital stays and highly specialized care. It is designed for patients who need intense, extended care for more than 25 days due to multiple injuries, trauma or medical complications. Patients receive daily physician visits and 24/7 registered nursing care at acute care staffing levels. Our comprehensive interdisciplinary team includes respiratory therapists; physical, occupational and speech therapists; dietitians; advanced pharmacy support; and physician specialists. We provide a full range of diagnostic and procedural options to patients when needed, both on-site and in collaboration with Spectrum Health Butterworth and Blodgett hospitals.
We provide care for patients with acute disorders who have tracheotomies or ventilators and who may require extensive respiratory treatments to maintain normal breathing. All ventilator-dependent patients are co-managed with a pulmonologist.
