Our services actually begin prior to admission to St. Elias and we pride ourselves on a patient and family based admission team. Each patient presents with a unique history and complex medical problem. Our goal is to provide services to meet the unique needs of each patient.

Conditions and treatment

Our physicians are board certified and we have 24-hour specialized nursing care along with therapists who work as a team on an individualized care plan for each patient. We consider the hospital to be a “bridge” of care from an acute setting to rehabilitation, home or another care facility that requires less intensive medical attention. The hospital is considered a progressive step on the road to wellness for the critically ill or complex patient. A partial listing of diagnoses and conditions we treat include:
