What is a Transitional Care Hospital? A Transitional Care Hospital is a short-term care facility for medically complex patients transitioning from the hospital to home. These patients still need continuous care by rehabilitation specialists before being cared for at home. The goal of the transitional care hospital is to assist patient recovery by providing the medical and rehabilitative care necessary to help patients regain a certain level of independence.
