Select Specialty Hospital - Gulf Coast combines the specialized expertise of a large hospital with the personalized attention of a smaller setting.
Occasionally, patients in the hospital have a need for a longer acute care stay due to their illness, multiple injuries, trauma, or medical complications. The unique medical needs of these types of patients require more intensive, focused hospital care for optimal recovery. Select Specialty Hospitals are designed specifically to meet the needs of these types of extended acute care patients.
At Select Specialty Hospital - Gulf Coast we have a Hospitalist on staff that can admit patients 7 days a week. He has a surgical background and is able to perform bedside procedures. We also staff a Nurse Practitioner that works very closely with the nursing staff & physicians to ensure continuous quality care.
Each patient is also assigned a case manager who will guide their case from admission through discharge. The case manager is available to answer questions, assist with insurance and to plan a safe, timely and appropriate discharge. Select Specialty Hospitals are Medicare certified and accredited by the Joint Commission. We participate with most major health insurers.
