Thank You for Visiting Vibra Hospital of Charleston

Long Term Acute Care Provider in South Carolina

A typical hospital is designed to treat patients with acute care needs for a few days or weeks. Sometimes, however, a patient’s condition requires a longer period of recovery, and most hospitals are not designed to accommodate this need. Vibra Hospital of Charleston is part of the Vibra Healthcare network, a national medical organization that offers extended care services throughout the United States. When a hospital or physician realizes that a patient requires long term care, they refer their treatment to us so that we can provide the close level of attention they need.

Our patients include those suffering from chronic conditions like cancer or respiratory illness. Our multidisciplinary team of specialists is also knowledgeable in complex wound care, rehabilitation, surgery, cardiac disease, and more.
