What is Acute Care?
Acute Care is the opposite of Chronic Care. Acute refers to shorter or temporary periods of time in which medical care is necessary to treat or manage your condition. It doesn’t necessarily reflect the severity of your condition/illness, rather the amount of time your treatment may take.
You might be treated for conditions that are the result of disease or trauma, as well as recovering from surgery. Acute care is provided as a collective effort of our entire team, utilizing technical equipment, pharmaceuticals, and medical supplies.
Hodgeman County Health Center offers Acute Care to our patients as needed. Because of the nature of the conditions and trauma that may be treated, our Acute Care services can be accessed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!
Is Acute Care Right For Me?
An Acute Care setting is defined as short-term care administered in facilities with medical staff, and all of the necessary personnel to provide diagnosis, care, and treatment of a wide range of acute conditions and injuries.
Whether you need Acute Care or more intensive, longer-term care; will be determined by our medical staff. This is based on our initial diagnosis and projected treatment plan.
