Acute care is a branch of healthcare where patients receive active but short-term treatment for an injury, illness, an urgent medical condition, or during recovery from surgery. Acute care is the opposite of chronic care or longer-term care.
In addition to our 17-bed facility, our Hebron Clinic also provides acute care every Saturday morning with appointments from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. This service means that patients do not have to go through the Emergency Room for minor treatment.
Our team of providers, nursing staff, social workers, and therapists work together to create a personalized plan to ensure that our patients are treated with exceptional, patient-centered healthcare. Our goal is to release patients as soon as they are deemed healthy and stable.
At Thayer County Health Services, we want to take this relationship to the next level by implementing an hourly patient clinical rounding program. Our hourly rounding program, utilizing nursing and ancillary clinical staff, benefits our patients and their families as well as promotes teamwork amongst healthcare providers.
While you are in our care, our staff will be making hourly visits during the day to ensure that your stay with us is as comfortable as possible. We understand that patients value the nurse-patient relationship, as well as time spent with them, continuity of care, trust, compassion, respect, safety, understandable instructions, and service quality.
