So Comprehensive, There’s No Need to Transfer
Unlike traditional long-term care settings, Carter offers a complement of on-site clinical services around the clock. This means that we can often avoid the interruption of care that occurs when patient needs escalate beyond the clinical capabilities found at most nursing facilities. In this circumstance, the on-site availability of our LTACH specialists and services continues the high level of care patients deserve – without disrupting their lives in the process.

New Construction
The hospital has utilized a variety of green building strategies and materials to enhance the aesthetic value and environmental-sensitivity of the site. By incorporating some of the measures outlined in this description, in addition to other sizable efforts, both buildings have received a Gold rating from the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program.
