Vibra Hospital of Fort Wayne

Elevating Patient Care

Long-term acute care is an extended period of hospital care for patients with complex medical needs. Traditional hospitals are not designed to handle this kind of care for long periods, so when their patients require these services they will typically refer them to a long-term care facility like Vibra Hospital of Fort Wayne.

We are part of the Vibra Healthcare network, a national long-term acute care and rehabilitation provider. This affiliation provides us with access to cutting edge medical research and technology that allows us to offer cost-effective and streamlined medical services.

Reducing Patient Readmissions

When patients with extended care needs are discharged from a hospital too early, they all too often end up being readmitted before the year is over. This is damaging to both the patient’s condition and their finances. As an extended care facility, we take the time to thoroughly evaluate a patient’s condition to determine the best treatment plan. A standard hospital accepts patients of various medical needs and therefore needs to facilitate care as quickly as possible so that they can free up room for incoming patients. With our niche focus, we can better address the needs of patients with chronic conditions and ensure that they can safely live independently and without discomfort before recommending their discharge.
