About Our Hospital 

Committed to Care

ContinueCARE Hospital at Palmetto Health Baptist provides care with an interdisciplinary approach, developing individualized care plans, encouraging family and/or caregiver participation, to achieve optimal patient outcomes. Our hospital is licensed under Medicare as a long-term acute care hospital, providing care for critically ill and medically complex patients who require a longer acute care stay than a traditional hospital.

We enjoy the best of both worlds by having relationships with larger systems, yet maintaining a small hospital atmosphere.
