Baptist Memorial Restorative Care Hospital

While this long-term, acute-care hospital is on the 4th floor (east wing) inside Baptist Memorial Hospital-Memphis, it is legally, organizationally and functionally separate. Baptist Memorial Restorative Care Hospital treats patients who require continued acute care over an extended length of time.

A patient may be admitted to Baptist Memorial Restorative Care Hospital under several indications:

  • Patient having difficulty weaning from a ventilator.
  • Stroke or cardiovascular patient requiring prolonged acute care.
  • Patient with multi-system processes and multiple comorbidities, such as end-stage kidney disease or long-term lung obstruction, who is frequently readmitted to a hospital because they can’t be stabilized with home care or a nursing home.
  • Patient with a complicated wound or ostomy (surgically created opening).
  • Patient needs step-down or intermediate care after discharge from an intensive care unit (ICU).

What nearly all these stable—but medically fragile—adult patients have in common is the potential for improvement to one or both of the following outcomes:

  • Transition to the lowest level of care possible.
  • Achieve self-sufficiency for the patient or family, through education, support and rehabilitation therapies.
