About Us

Quitman’s facility breathed new life in 1987 when the Hospital Authority of Brooks County Hospital leased the facility to John D. Archbold Memorial Hospital. The hospital’s affiliation with Archbold Hospital has proven to be an invaluable resource for the enhancement of the available healthcare for Brooks County citizens.

It’s important to know about the people who will be caring for you or a loved one.  We encourage you to find out more about us and what we have to offer by visiting us anytime.  We’ll be happy to give you a tour of our facility, meet the staff and realize what we already know:  Brooks County Hospital provides exceptional care.

Subacute Care

Generally when patients are first admitted to a hospital, they require nursing care. The first entry into the hospital is called an “acute care” admission. Usually the patient steadily regains his health and the need for extensive care is reduced. Eventually, the patient is well enough to be discharged from the hospital.

Sometimes, however, a patient may need an extended period of time after the acute phase of an illness to fully recuperate (usually two to three weeks). This type of medical attention is called “skilled nursing care” and is the type of care usually given in a nursing home or other healthcare setting.

Instead of transferring the patient needing skilled care to a nursing home, we offer the “Subacute Care” option.

When the patient in the hospital recuperates to the point where only skilled care is needed, the patient’s status is changed from acute care to subacute care. The patient is cared for in the hospital in much the same way as care would be provided in a nursing home, only with a higher intensity of services generally provided only by a hospital.
