Vibra Hospital of Fargo

Terms of Use: Message from CEO On behalf of the entire Vibra Hospital of Fargo staff, it is my pleasure to welcome you. Whether you are visiting, seeking employment or just researching our services, we hope you find our website helpful and informative. Vibra Hospital is the provider of choice in this region for patients requiring longer term hospitalization. When we first opened our doors in 1998, it was our goal to create a specialized acute care hospital that treats patients and families with personalized attention in the highest quality manner. I can assure you that our experienced and dedicated team of physicians, nurses, clinicians and supporting staff are driven toward this goal each and every day. What Is a Specialty Acute Care Hospital? Vibra specialty acute care hospitals (certified as long-term acute care hospitals) are unique in their ability to care for difficult to treat, chronically critically ill patients who require specialized and aggressive goal-directed care over an extended recovery period. Typical patients have multiple co-morbidities, multi organ system failure, and significant loss of independence, most following a traditional hospital stay. Specialty acute care hospitals are licensed as acute care hospitals with additional Medicare certification that supports a length of stay measured in weeks (more than 25 days on average for Medicare patients) as compared to the typical three to five day stay for patients in traditional short-term acute care hospitals. We are consequently unique in our ability to care for critically ill patients who require specialized, aggressive, goal-directed care over an extended recovery period. Specialty acute care hospitals provide long-term acute care (LTAC) to complex medically complex patients who require an extended stay in a hospital setting. When a family is trying to decide which post-acute care setting a family member should go to — a nursing home, a specialty acute care hospital, or an acute rehabilitation hospital — there is one basic question: Does the patient’s care need to be directed by a physician (in a specialty acute care hospital), by a nurse (in a nursing facility), or by a rehabilitation team (in an acute rehabilitation hospital)? If a patient needs a doctor every day — one who is available at all times — the patient needs to be in a specialty acute care hospital for long-term acute care. Our long-term acute care patients come from a variety of healthcare settings, but about 95% come from short-term acute care hospitals. Our patients have a large variety of complicated medical conditions, occurring at the same time. Those patients usually end up in a short-term acute care hospital before they come to Vibra. Vibra Hospitals have licensure, accreditation and certification to the same standard as any community or university hospital. Vibra offers an Interdisciplinary Team Approach to Care The interdisciplinary team is made up of clinicians who have a responsibility in the patient's recovery. It's led by the attending physician and includes nurses, pharmacists, nutritionists, occupational therapists, speech and language pathologists, as well as physical therapists. These seven or eight people set goals, mark progress and coordinate the care so the patient’s experience and outcome can be as good as it possibly can be. Our patients are as sick as patients in short-term acute care hospitals. However, our goals are different: In the short-term acute care hospitals, the goal is to stabilize the patient day-to-day. In the specialty acute care hospitals, the interdisciplinary team's job is to identify the medical conditions, formulate a treatment plan, set reasonable goals and coordinate everyone's interests around meeting those goals. Those goals are not simply to get the patient through the night, but to work toward improvement over the long term. When a Vibra Specialty Acute Care Hospital Is the Right Choice The fundamental question is, "Is the best place for me as a patient in a hospital where people like me make up only one or two percent of the patients? Or is it in a place that is filled with people just like me, with a large burden of illness with a lot of complexity?" At specialty acute care hospitals, the staff can look at their patients or loved ones and say, "I recognize this type of patient, I know what to do, I know how they're different, how they're unique, and how they're special." At Vibra Hospital, we can provide special acute care for our patients and their loved ones while offering hope, healing and recovery. Please do not hesitate to contact any member of our staff or myself if you have any questions. We welcome the opportunity to serve you now and in the future.
