The Scott & White Continuing Care Hospital (CCH) in Temple is an acute care hospital, not a chronic care nursing home or skilled nursing facility, and the average length of stay is 25 days. Patients cared for are critically ill with complex conditions. Many of these patients depend on technology such as ventilators, special monitors or dialysis.

Our team, which includes physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists, pharmacists and specialists in physical, occupational and speech therapy, utlizes its skills and experience to individualize care for our long-term patients.

  • Ventilator weaning
  • Pulmonary disease
  • Cardiopulmonary disorders

  • Neuromuscular diseases

  • Post-operative complications (infection, stroke, bleeding)
