Kentfield San Francisco is a specialty hospital that provides expertise to medically complex patients who may require extended acute care hospitalization. Kentfield's patients are seen daily by their physician and the hospital provides qualified nursing staff based on acuity and state guidelines for acute care hospitals.
Kentfield San Francisco is licensed by the State of California Department of Health Services as a general acute care hospital. The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services has certified Kentfield as a long term acute care hospital (LTACH). LTACH facilities bridge the gap between the critical care units and the medical/surgical units of general acute care hospitals. LTACHs are specifically designed to meet the needs of patients facing extended hospital stays.
Kentfield San Francisco provides complex medical treatment and specialized rehabilitation needs in one setting. The medical staff represents a broad array of specialists to provide expertise to manage patients at risk for medical crisis. Patients receive early access to interdisciplinary services, which prevents the future need to transfer to an acute rehabilitation hospital.
Kentfield San Francisco is not a skilled nursing facility, a subacute facility or a rehabilitation only hospital.
