ContinueCARE Hospital at Palmetto Health Baptist, formerly known as InterMedical Hospital of South Carolina, is a 35-bed Long Term Acute Care Hospital (LTACH). Located in the heart of Columbia, SC, ContinueCARE Hospital at Palmetto is managed by CHC ContinueCARE in partnership with Palmetto Health Baptist. Our hospital is specifically licensed to provide care for critically ill patients who require daily physician and staff attention for complex medical issues.
As the only LTACH in the area, we enjoy the best of both worlds by being in partnership with a 413-bed acute and skilled-care facility yet maintaining our small hospital atmosphere. Our 150+ 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.
If you thrive in an environment where you get to know your patients and their families, a career with us may be just the right prescription for success. With our longer length of stay, you will be able to spend quality time making a difference for each patient and their family. You’ll enjoy the resources of a large facility paired with the warmth and camaraderie of a small hospital. We put our team first because we believe that’s the foundation of excellent patient care. Our management team knows you have a life outside of work.
To bridge the gap in service delivery to patients who require complex, long term acute care. While focusing on prevention of secondary medical conditions that endanger the welfare of our patients, we provide personalized medical, nursing and therapeutic care. With excellence and compassion as our guiding principles, we are an essential contributor to the continuum of care within the healthcare community. ContinueCARE Hospital at Palmetto strives to improve the physical, emotional, and spiritual health of our patients and their families without regard to race, religion, disability, gender and/or ability to pay.
