Frequently Asked Questions

The Aultman Specialty Hospital, formerly the Acute Care Specialty Hospital, was established in 2004 and is a not-for-profit organization that is part of Aultman Health Foundation. We specialize in providing long-term acute care for patients with medically complex respiratory, cardiac, renal conditions, neurological disorders and wounds.

We are located on the fourth floor of the main Aultman Hospital building. We are a “hospital within a hospital.” Our physical address is 2600 Sixth St. S.W. in Canton, Ohio. Our phone number is 330-363-4000.

Our hospital offers our patients, their families and loved ones:

  • 30 spacious, private rooms with individual cardiac monitoring.
  • Daily multidisciplinary rounds, led by our critical care intensivists, including nurses; pharmacists; physical, occupational and speech therapists; respiratory therapists; dietitians; and case managers. 
  • Registered nurses who are specially trained and experienced in critical care nursing.
  • Respiratory therapists who are experienced in caring for patients with complex respiratory needs. 
  • On-site diagnostic radiology and lab services.
  • Pharmacists, physical, occupational, speech therapists and dietitians.
  • Case managers who coordinate the transition of care from admission to discharge.

Our facility is certified by The Joint Commission, recognized nationally as a symbol of quality that reflects a health care organization’s commitment to meeting performance standards. We measure our performance by tracking outcomes, such as successful weaning of 70 percent of our patients from mechanical ventilation.

Transfer of a patient to our facility depends on several factors:

  • Criteria: Every patient who is referred to our facility must meet minimum criteria for an LTACH level of care. It is important to note that not every patient who is referred meets our admission criteria. The Aultman Specialty Hospital utilizes the National Association of Long Term Hospitals (NALTH) admission guidelines. 
  • Goals/Patient outcomes: Every patient who is admitted to the Aultman Specialty Hospital must have a reasonable and obtainable goal prior to admission. This allows our staff to formulate a plan of care that is tailored to each patient. Each patient’s progress is monitored by the physician and staff to determine when it is appropriate for the patient to be discharged. 

No two patients are the same. The length of a patient’s stay is determined by the patient’s progress. In general terms, the average length of stay for a patient is 25-30 days.

Visiting hours are from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily, with a maximum of two visitors permitted at one time. To optimize patient care and privacy, visitors may be asked to leave temporarily during patient care. Age is limited to 14 years and older.

Discharge planning starts the moment the patient is admitted. Discharge planning is dynamic in nature and depends on several factors including:

  • Diagnosis of the patient.
  • Patient's progress.
  • Patient's prognosis.

Upon discharge, it is not uncommon for patients to require additional care. Early anticipation of your family member’s discharge needs enables us to help with any questions you may have regarding the discharge process.
