Formed in 2004, CHC ContinueCARE, LLC, is our post-acute care organization that provides a wide range of services, including the development and management of long-term acute care hospitals (LTACHs). LTACHs offer high-quality, compassionate care for acutely ill patients who require specialized care and extended recovery times.
ContinueCARE Hospital at Baptist Health Madisonville opened in the summer of 2015 as a 36-bed Long Term Acute Care Hospital (LTACH) located on the fourth floor of our host hospital, Baptist Health Madisonville. As the only LTACH in the area, we enjoy the best of both worlds by being in partnership with a 410-bed acute and skilled-care facility yet maintaining our small hospital atmosphere. Our employees are a dedicated team who work together delivering the best possible care for our patients. Since we have a longer length of stay, our staff has the opportunity to know patients and families. We believe spending quality time makes a difference. And we want to make a difference.
As a 'hospital-within-a-hospital,' we are a separate yet fully licensed acute-care hospital with the ability to provide intensive and complex medical treatment. Our specialty programs are specifically designed to meet the needs of long-term, acute-care patients.
