    January 20, 2015 - SSH Victorian Village Partners with Critical Care Physician Groups

    Select Specialty Hospital at Columbus’s Victorian Village Campus (SSH) announced today that it has expanded its coverage by partnering with physician groups to offer critical care coverage 24 hours a day, seven days a week. “We have seen an increase in the medical complexity of our patients,” explained Victoria Ruff, M.D., Medical Director at SSH. “In the past when some of these patients may have experienced complications requiring critical care physician involvement, they would have been transferred back to an ICU. Now we can care for them right here with expert critical care physician oversight and up to a one-to-one patient-to-nurse ratio.”

    July 19, 2013 - AARC Distinction

    To earn the AARC distinction, Select Specialty Hospital-Victorian Village has to demonstrate and ensure patient safety by agreeing to adhere to a strict set of criteria governing respiratory care services. Out of 5,000 U.S. Hospitals, only 700 (approximately 15 percent of hospitals) have received this distinction from the American Association for Respiratory Care.


    The AARC states that "hospitals that meet the Quality Respiratory Care Program requirements provide a level of respiratory care consistent with national standards and guidelines, and should be commended for their commitment to quality care." Our Respiratory Therapists are specially trained healthcare professionals who work under physician's orders to provide a wide range of breathing treatments and other services for individuals with asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cystic fibrosis, lung cancer, AIDS, and other lung-related conditions.
