ContinueCARE Hospital at Baptist Health Paducah opened in the summer of 2015 as a 37-bed Long Term Acute Care Hospital (LTACH) located on the fifth floor of our host hospital, Baptist Health Paducah. As the only LTACH in the area, we enjoy the best of both worlds by being in partnership with a 373-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, including our Pulmonary Program and ‘Vent Weaning,’ are specifically designed to meet the needs of long-term, acute-care patients.

Please tour our Website to learn more about our hospital, the specialty care we provide, career opportunities, and the benefits of being a part of our great team of professionals.
