Covenant Specialty Hospital
Recovery following a traumatic injury, serious illness or major surgery
is a slow and painstaking process. For patients with complicating medical
issues, such as diabetes or chronic respiratory disease, that process
may require extended acute support beyond the typical hospital stay. Covenant
Specialty Hospital is the region’s newest acute-care option for
patients whose hospital stays average 25 days or more.
Covenant Specialty Hospital offers state-of-the-art support, specialized
treatment programs and aggressive clinical and therapeutic intervention
by physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists and other caregivers. This
healing environment is designed to be family-friendly, with 56 private
patient rooms offering nonrestrictive visiting hours, a kitchen/dining
room, outdoor rest areas and a therapy garden, as well as conference rooms
where families can meet with the medical team to discuss treatment plans
and review progress.
Covenant Specialty Hospital is prepared to deliver a comprehensive range
of health services for acute-care patients. The facility includes two
procedure rooms, a mobile X-ray unit for in-house imaging and a respiratory
therapy department. When necessary, other services may be provided by
Covenant Medical Center.
Because our patients’ conditions can change rapidly, all rooms are
designed to support telemetry monitoring. Specialized rooms are available
for ventilator use and in-room dialysis, while others are equipped with
negative/positive pressure capabilities to reduce the risk of infection.
Covenant Specialty Hospital offers three care programs:
Medically Complex Program. For patients with multiple system failures following a hospital stay,
this supportive program provides IV therapy, dialysis and/or nutritional
support. Intensive nursing and rehabilitation are provided to help patients
regain the health stability to move out of an acute-care setting.
Pulmonary/Ventilator Management Program. This program is designed to reduce or eliminate the need for mechanical
respiratory support, either following a surgical procedure or in response
to chronic respiratory disease. Our team of respiratory therapists works
with patients to rebuild strength, improve lung function and regain communication
skills. Participants in this program include both those recovering from
a major surgical procedure, such as cardiac bypass, or with a serious
respiratory condition, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Wound Care Program. Chronic, hard-to-heal wounds can become a serious problem for patients
recovering from trauma, surgery or an extended stay in bed. Our specialists
offer a range of treatment options, including debridement and skin grafts,
to accelerate the healing process and reduce the occurrence of pressure ulcers.
