Massachusetts Non-Acute Hospital Profiles

FY17 Hospital Profiles
Publication Materials


Non-acute hospitals in Massachusetts are typically identified as either:

    • Psychiatric care;
    • Rehabilitation care;
    • Chronic care; or
    • Specialty care.


Non-acute hospitals are defined using the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) and Department of Mental Health (DMH) license criteria. When presenting trends for utilization, costs, and financial performance, baseline data is provided for each hospital’s cohort as a point of comparison.

Psychiatric hospitals are licensed by DMH for psychiatric services and by DPH for substance abuse services.

Rehabilitation hospitals provide intensive post-acute rehabilitation services, such as physical, occupational, and speech therapy services. For Medicare payment purposes, the federal government classifies hospitals as rehabilitation hospitals if they provide more than 60% of their inpatient services to patients with one or more of 13 diagnoses listed in federal regulations.

Chronic care hospitals are hospitals with an average length of patient stay greater than 25 days. These hospitals typically provide longer-term care, such as ventilator dependent care. Medicare classifies chronic care hospitals as Long-Term Acute Care Hospitals, using the same 25-day threshold.

Non-acute specialty care hospitals provide long-term and unique patient care services.
