Saint Francis Healthcare Partners

Hospital for Special Care is a member of a newly formed affiliated Post-Acute Care Network to offer patients of Saint Francis Care a high-quality, efficient network of preferred providers to enhance the transition from hospital care to post-acute care. This affiliated provider network will include the full continuum of post-acute care services, including long-term acute care, inpatient rehabilitation, skilled nursing, and home health and hospice. To facilitate ease of planning, the affiliated providers will have access to patient information through the Saint Francis electronic medical records (EMR) EpiCare software. The EMR at Saint Francis is a single point of data entry for patient medical services, providing medical history for each patient.

Selection criteria for participation in the network included Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) quality scores, readmission rates, availability of specialty clinical programs/capabilities, other quality criteria, and proximity. HSC is proud to provide long-term acute care and medical rehabilitation services to patients in this post-acute care continuum. We share the Saint Francis Care goal to “provide our patients and their families with the peace of mind that everyone is working toward providing the best possible care plan with the goal of getting the patient better, faster.”
