Intensive Specialty Hospital

You deserve healthcare providers who are experts in your specific needs.

We know that expertise doesn't happen by accident.


Specialized care for Every. Single. Need.

Meet Hana,* an ISH patient. Just last week, her respiratory therapist helped wean her off of a ventilator. This week, a specialized wound care nurse treats Hana’s trach wound. A doctor is managing Hana’s pain under the direction of a neuro-rehab physician. At the first sign of dependency, an addictionologist may be called in to provide guidance and suggest alternative medications. About an hour after lunch, a physical therapist stops by to help Hana work on special exercises to prevent her muscles from atrophying during her prolonged hospital stay. Tomorrow, Hana will speak with a social worker to talk through some of the stress and anxiety she’s been feeling about her condition. She’ll discover social groups and other resources to support her mental health during her recovery.

Our History

Our healthcare organization was founded in 1992 as Lagniappe Hospital and was acquired by Intensive Specialty Hospital in 2019. We’ve transformed the hospital into a unique facility that harnesses experts from every medical discipline to provide leading treatment for both psychiatric and medical conditions. During the COVID-19 pandemic, our facility was the most sought-after long-term acute respiratory care center in the region.
