Acute Medical Care for a Better Recovery
The Complex Care Program at Retreat Doctors' Hospital is the only one of its kind in Virginia. Our program prepares patients with severe illnesses and injuries, and their families, for a return home or a transition to a rehabilitation care center. You or your loved one will receive individualized medical care and specialized therapies designed to help re-learn basic tasks and tackle larger challenges. The result is a better outcome, a shorter stay in the hospital and a more positive recovery and rehabilitation.
