Select Specialty Hospital
We also have a dedicated Select Specialty Hospital for patients who need long-term acute care related to pulmonary disease.
There is clearly an increasing need for rehabilitation facilities that specialize in the care of patients who are recovering from critical illness. Such patients need carefully supervised physical and occupational rehabilitation while their medical and surgical needs are addressed daily.
The Select rehabilitation facility at Durham Regional Hospital is a 30-bed unit with a team consisting of a pulmonary attending, pulmonary fellow, pharmacist, nutritionist, respiratory therapists, physical therapist, and nursing staff.
Through an active collaboration with Select Medical Corporation, we believe that we will be able to improve the lives of this increasingly common population of patients who have survived their initial critical illness.
