UVA Transitional Care Hospital
Transitional Care Hospital
The UVA Transitional Care Hospital is the first long-term acute care hospital (LTAC) in the Charlottesville area. We specialize in treating individuals with serious medical conditions that require a longer length of stay (25-28 days on average) than is standard at a typical acute care hospital.
Most patients in our facility include those who need weaning from ventilators, have complex wounds or have multiple complex medical issues that require daily nursing, therapy, nutritional and physician care.
Patients are medically stable but are too ill to be discharged home, to a nursing facility or an acute care rehabilitation facility.
Being part of the UVA Health System allows us to provide these patients full access to a wide range of clinical specialties, the latest technology, expertise and services.

Better Care for Complex Patients
We built the Transitional Care Hospital with the needs of our patients in mind. We equipped rooms with tools needed to treat patients with complex conditions, including bariatric patients and those who require regular dialysis.
The Transitional Care Hospital is a freestanding facility located in Northridge Medical Park off Ivy Road in Charlottesville. We're close to UVA Health System’s main campus. We have free parking right outside our doors. We also have an onsitethat provides diagnostic imaging services.
