What does it take to move an LTACH strategy forward?

First, assess market need. Second, assess the opportunity.

 

There is renewed interest in the benefits of LTACHs, especially since the sunset of a federal moratorium limiting new LTACHs and beds.

 

CHC helps hospitals evaluate their LTACH strategy and move LTACH operations and finances forward for competitive advantage. Often, we begin together with a comprehensive assessment, which identifies market need for LTACH services as well as organizational strengths and vulnerabilities.

 

CHC offers distinction – through our post-acute care organization, CHC ContinueCARE LLC, we offer a unique ownership model that provides:

  • LTACH management and operational expertise
  • Built-in opportunities to maximize LTACH performance

  • Opportunities for favorable lease and purchased services agreements for the host hospital
  • Financial distributions from the new LTACH
  • Charity services agreement
