The Northwest Specialty Hospital continues to fill a special health care need in the community. The hospital treats patients with serious and often complex medical conditions such as respiratory failure, neuromuscular disorders, cardiac disorders, non-healing wounds and any medical complications requiring acute care for an extended period of time.. The hospital provides 24-hour nursing care delivered by a nursing staff trained in the care of acutely ill patients. Other services provided are respiratory,physical,occupational and speech therapy. The hospital is a 24-bed facility housed on the second floor of INTEGRIS Bass Pavilion. Its sole purpose is to provide acute,long-term care to its patients,who typically require a level of care that is less intensive than that provided by an ICU and more intensive that what is available elsewhere.
