Short-term (Subacute) Care


Subacute care is primarily for patients who have recently been hospitalized and need a transitional care setting between their hospital stay and their return to home.

Patients enrolled in a subacute program reside for a short period (28 days, on average) at a designated facility where they receive nursing and therapy care to rebuild their strength and also learn how to better manage their disease or condition.

When to Seek Subacute Care

Patients who may be referred for subacute services may have:

  • Medical diseases or conditions that limit function (i.e. congestive heart failure, status-post open heart surgery, pulmonary deficits)
  • Neurological conditions, including Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's, neuropathies, etc.
  • Orthopedic conditions, including total joint replacements and fractures
  • Wounds

Becoming a Patient

Patients are often discharged from a hospital to a subacute setting and are referred by a physician, case manager or discharge planner. Patients and their families can request a Catholic Health subacute facility by telling their hospital discharge planner of their preference.
