Admissions Process

With a physician’s referral, we admit patients from almost any health care setting including:

  • Hospital Intensive Care Units
  • Hospital Medical and Surgical Units
  • Skilled Nursing Facilities
  • Rehabilitation Hospitals

Many of our patients are admitted with various conditions including respiratory issues (ventilator dependent); infectious diseases, advanced wounds that are not healing properly, and several other medically complex conditions.

Our referral line is open 7 days-a-week.

We coordinate a medical evaluation, complete insurance verification/pre-certification and educate both the patient and families of what they can expect during their stay at Promise. Our admissions department works closely with a patient’s physicians and case managers, as well as the other healthcare providers, to make a patient’s transition to Promise Hospital of Baton Rouge a seamless process.
