McLaren Oakland has partnered with Pioneer Specialty Hospital to open a long term acute care unit (LTAC). The LTAC unit fills an important role in the continuum of patient care and addresses the needs of a small patient population who cannot be effectively treated in the conventional healthcare setting.

The LTAC unit provides inpatient hospital services under the close supervision of a physician for medically complex patients who require relatively long hospital stays (over 25 days on average).

Patients are referred to the LTAC for the continuation of acute medical care because the severity and complexity of their condition prevent them from being accepted into a rehabilitation hospital or a skilled nursing facility.

Our specialized treatment programs include treating the whole person through a well-planned, aggressive, integrated program of medical and therapeutic care. Our programs include:

The Pulmonary/Ventilator Program:

This provides patients with respiratory failure the opportunity to be successfully weaned from ventilator dependence and achieve their highest functioning level. Because of the continuity of care over an extended period of time, many of our patients can return home breathing on their own.

Medically Complex Program:

Patients receive integrated treatment for more than one condition, including life-support services that can include telemetry, nutritional support, cardiac and respiratory monitoring and dialysis.

Complex Wound Program:

Patients with pressure ulcers, serious wound complications or who are recovering from extensive surgery receive specialized treatment through this program.

From elderly persons suffering from pre-existing conditions that complicate the course of their treatment, to technology-dependent individual requiring ongoing intensive nursing care, every patient is treated with dignity, respect, and compassion.
