They're known as Life Care Hospitals and they're growing throughout South Texas.

Post acute care hospitals are branches of secondary health care where patients receive active but short-term treatment services.

These centers provide services for severe injury or episode of illness, an urgent medical condition, or during recovery from surgery.

And here in the valley there's a lack of them, one local hospital is speaking out on their importance and explains that the services which they provide are paramount for those struggling when it comes to acute care.
