Eleanor Slater Hospital (ESH) is a Long-Term Acute Care Hospital (LTACH), which specializes in the treatment of patients with serious medical conditions, with two locations – a facility in Cranston (on the Pastore Campus) and in Burrillville (on the Zambarano Campus). ESH provides care for those who have conditions which require care on an ongoing basis, however no longer require intensive care or extensive diagnostic procedures.

Typically, LTACHs:
  • Care for patients with a high level of acuity and require a high level of care;
