Founded by a critical care patient. Our story is your story.

Uncommon challenges.

Uncommon care.

Our story began nearly 30 years ago when one of our founders became critically ill. After a nine-month hospitalization and an even longer recovery, he made it his mission to create a company that could deliver the special care necessary to manage complex medical cases. The result is Special Care Unit. See the video.

Our hands-on philosophy traces its heritage to our founder's experience and engages both patients and their families. We employ an aggressive rehabilitation style that motivates patients to improve and also provides a platform for families to participate in the Plan of Care. 

We maintain a very low patient to clinician ratio and encourage liberal visitation, including overnight stays. In addition, we embrace a collaborative case management philosophy with the objective of providing care and comfort in equal measure.

Doing the Right Things. Doing Things Right.

We offer your family individualized case management to help guide your choices. Furthermore, we encourage the family to participate in the plan of care, visit frequently, and even stay overnight. An uncommon approach that accelerates both physical and emotional recovery. 


A diverse range of medical professionals comprise our team. However, they all share an uncommon commitment to the only outcome that matters: safely and quickly reuniting patients with their families.
