The opportunity to fill empty beds, increase utilization, and bolster revenues without adding staff has made subacute care one of the fastest growing subspecialties in healthcare. Hospitals, nursing facilities, and independent management companies have discovered that subacute care - the area of patient care that lies somewhere between inpatient hospitalization and long-term care services - is capable of generating more profits for financially healthy institutions or turning around struggling organizations. Subacute Care Services introduces and defines this financially prosperous industry while addressing the intrinsic value of its services to healthcare professionals. Subacute Care Services provides a pragmatic look at the development process for starting a subacute care unit and discusses the hospital versus long-term care facility as a unit site. Written by the leading experts in the field, Subacute Care Services is a "must" read for healthcare professionals in hospitals and long-term care.Kelly, Marshall W. is the author of 'Subacute Care Services The Evolving Opportunities & Challenges', published 1996 under ISBN 9781557386212 and ISBN 1557386218.
