About Us

Centra Specialty Hospital is a long term acute care hospital that offers expert patient and family-centered care. Our Mission, Vision, and Values were developed with input from all levels of the organization and have been communicated throughout the organization. All members of our team pursue excellence in the delivery of services consistent with our mission, vision, and values.

We specialize in providing extended hospital care for the medically complex, catastrophically injured or critically ill patients who:

  • Cannot be cared for at a lower level of care.
  • Require an average of 2-4 weeks of additional hospitalization before progressing through the healthcare continuum.
  • No longer require ICU level care but are too complex to transfer to a skilled nursing or rehab facility.
  • Have had one or more hospitalizations within the last 30 days.

An individualized care plan is designed for each patient by a team that relies on the expertise of multiple caregivers. The team, led by a physician, includes nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists, speech therapists, dietitians, and case managers. All members of the team are focused on working with the patient and their family to develop a plan of care that will maximize the patient’s recovery.
