LifeCare Health Partners - Award-Winning Care


Award-Winning Care is What We Deliver

LifeCare Health Partners encompasses the LifeCare family of hospitals, as well as a spectrum of post-acute services including wound care, inpatient and outpatient behavioral health treatment and home-based care. Care teams meet patients in the most appropriate care setting for their specific needs to advance health, healing and recovery across the care continuum. Delivering exceptional care across many categories can lead to being recognized for our performance.

We have had the privilege of having some of our hospitals receive prestigious awards, recognition and certification from The Joint Commission in various disciplines.

Each hospital in the LifeCare Family of Hospitals provides a unique healing environment dedicated to the treatment of medically complex patients.

We operate both freestanding and "hospital-in-hospital" long term acute care (LTAC) hospitals offering both critical care and intensive therapy services in safe, caring environments. Currently, our hospital network includes more and hospital-in-hospital acute care specialty hospitals nationwide. All hospitals in the LifeCare Family are accredited by The Joint Commission and Medicare certified.

At LifeCare, we never forget the importance of our mission and the responsibility that comes with it. We are dedicated to achieving better health for our patients by treating each person's body, mind and soul. Working from a set of basic beliefs and core clinical standards, we help patients reach their recovery goals while improving clinical outcomes, shortening lengths of stay and reducing healthcare costs.


The Joint Commission Gold Seal


Colorado Acute Long Term Hospital has earned The Joint Commission's Gold Seal of Approval® for Disease-Specific Wound Care Certification. The certification is a symbol of the level of quality and clinical excellence the hospital's Wound Healing Institute of Denver demonstrates through its commitment to providing safe and effective patient care. The hospital's program, led by Dr. Glenn Herrmann, a nationally renowned plastic surgeon, provides individualized treatment plans designed for high-risk patients with impaired tissue integrity.

"Such certification is a colossal achievement," said Dr. Herrmann. "It solidifies the tremendous efforts the hospital is willing to put forth to bring world-class wound care to the patients of Colorado and the surrounding states."

Along with Colorado Acute Long Term Hospital, LifeCare Hospitals of Fort Worth and LifeCare Hospitals of Plano have also been bestowed the honor of The Gold Seal for Disease-Specific Wound Care by The Joint Commission. We are proud of their outstanding work in the wound care field.

LifeCare Hospitals of Dayton and LifeCare Hospitals of San Antonio have earned The Joint Commission's Certificate of Distinction in the Management of Respiratory Failure. The certification is a symbol of the level of quality and clinical excellence the hospitals’ Respiratory Failure programs demonstrate through their commitment to providing safe and effective patient care.

And in yet another category, Complex Care Hospital at Tenaya has been awarded the Gold Seal of Approval® for Congestive Heart Failure by The Joint Commission. This distinction makes Complex Care Hospital at Tenaya the only Joint Commission certified Congestive Heart Failure Program in Nevada.

All of our awarded hospitals underwent a rigorous on-site review to qualify for this award. Joint Commission experts evaluated compliance with national disease-specific care standards. Clinical practice guidelines and performance measures were also assessed for this honorable accolade.
