Select Specialty Hospital - Tri Cities 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.
Select Specialty Hospital Tri - Cities offers a wide range of services through coordinated and focused care teams. Please see a listing provided below, under "Core Services".
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.
We are located on the 5 West floor(s) of Wellmont Bristol Regional Medical Center, which allows us seamless transition of patients.
