Admissions Process

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

  • Hospital Intensive Care Units

  • 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 KPC Promise Hospital of Baton Rouge a seamless process.
