Long-Term Acute Care

Our 201-bed Long-Term Acute Care Hospital serves high acuity, medically fragile patients, many of whom require ventilator support. We excel at providing care for patients with multiple chronic medical conditions that significantly impact life functioning, such as:

  • Respiratory failure
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Uncontrolled diabetes
  • Complex infections
  • Complex wounds

To meet the demands of our patient population, Carter is designed, equipped, and staffed to provide specialized clinical support around the clock. This includes physicians on site at all times, sub-specialty care that is always accessible – pulmonologists, infectious disease specialists, cardiologists – and a full complement of clinical support services such as clinical labs, radiology, respiratory care, and pharmacy.
