Our Facility and Services

PAM Specialty Hospital of Luling is a Joint Commission Accredited, 34-bed, Long-Term Acute Care Hospital (LTACH). We offer personalized clinical and medical services to those patients who require extended observation and monitoring for complex medical issues.

PAM Specialty Hospital of Luling is driven to obtain the best possible outcome for our patients. We use an individual care planning process with specific goals to meet the needs of our various patients.


Persons requiring long-term acute care are generally:

  • Admitted directly from the ICU
  • Medically and physically compromised with multi-system complications and/or failures that require hospitalization.
  • In need of extended acute care, but have the potential for recovery and may then transition home or to the next level of care.

Inpatient Therapy

Through our In-patient services we help those who are ready to return home but still need therapy on a daily or weekly basis. Patients will find specialized therapy equipment in the In-patient therapy area designed to enhance strength and endurance. Clinicians also work with patients to design a home therapy program – with our ADL ( Activities of Daily Living) Kitchen and Bathroom we are able to train for a home environment discharge.


Lab and Pharmacy

The hub of ancillary services for Warm Springs is located on the first floor across from the cafeteria. This area houses a pharmacy and a laboratory. Our laboratory has all the necessary equipment to perform blood analysis, urine analysis, transfusions and blood gas analysis. These kinds of capabilities can be critical for monitoring the conditions of a rehabilitation patient recently released from an acute care hospital.

In addition to a clinical laboratory, Warm Springs has a fully equipped pharmacy, staffed seven days a week.
