Landmark Hospital of Joplin is the premier Long Term Acute Care (LTAC) hospital
of the four states area. This hospital has built a solid reputation for providing
the very best patient care and excellent customer service. This has been verified
by the hospital receiving full accreditation by the Joint Commission after a comprehensive
on-site survey, the most rigorous standard for excellence in hospital care. Discharge
planners who refer patients to Landmark say their patients return from their stay
at Landmark with rave reviews, and are highly satisfied with their experience. This
excellence is due to the tireless efforts of the highly experienced and competent
staff of physicians, nurses, other clinicians, and support personnel, who are dedicated
to being the best at what they do.
The hospital operates as a joint-venture between Landmark Holdings of Missouri, LLC,
and the two short-term acute care hospitals in Joplin, Freeman and St. Johns. The
facility has 30 single-occupancy rooms, providing a more private, comfortable experience
during the patient’s stay. A patient’s average length of stay is about 27 days,
depending on the patient’s level of acuity. Primary diagnoses include ventilator
weaning, complex medical, and wound care. Most patients come to Landmark from a
short-term acute care hospital, and are discharged to home, skilled nursing, or
rehab. The nurse to patient ratio is one of the best in the industry. Weekly patient
care conferences by the clinical team help ensure each patient receives the best
care to maximize their healing.
Landmark Hospital has developed strong relationships in the medical community and
works in partnership with other hospitals and doctors. The care the hospital provides
will continue to make a positive difference for critically ill patients and their
families in the four states area.
