About Us

We are a modern Medical Clinic

By serving as an extension of your hospital’s clinical continuum, Columbus Specialty Hospital can help relieve the gridlock commonly experienced by many tertiary critical care units.  Utilizing a long-term acute care hospital for appropriate patients can help efficient bed management or ICU units so hospitals can accommodate other admissions.

  • The patient is no longer in a crisis intervention stage of treatment.
  • They have completed initial diagnostic work up.
  • There are no planned major invasive surgical procedures.
  • The patient has a prognosis of an extended stay (25 days or more) in an acute care setting.
