Promise Hospital of Baton Rouge is a Long-Term Acute Care Hospital (LTACH). At Promise Hospital we use an interdisciplinary, team approach to treatment specifically designed for patients who need a longer acute care recovery period. We specialize in the medical management of patients with complex, unresolved, acute, chronic, or catastrophic illnesses, as well as multi-system disease processes. Patients benefit from our unique LTACH environment that delivers acute medical care and therapy services while maximizing our patients’ recovery options.
Promise Hospital’s interdisciplinary team approach to treatment is led by a select group of dedicated local physicians who are committed to providing quality patient care. Our nurses, therapists, nutritionists, and case managers work with our physicians to insure our patients get personalized, compassionate care in the most efficient and appropriate manner. Each patient's treatment plan is individually designed to meet their specific goals in order to reach their maximum quality of life. At Promise Hospital our staff provides on-going communication and education to patients and their families throughout their stay. We understand that patients and their families are important members of the treatment team, and that building good relationships will enhance the healing process.
One of our goals is to make the referral process quick and easy. Our admissions department works closely with a patient's physician as well as the other healthcare providers within the continuum of care to make the patient’s transition to the LTACH a smooth process. Promise Hospital’s team of area clinical liaisons will provide an on-site evaluation of the patient as quickly as possible to determine if they meet criteria for our unique level of care. We know that time is valuable and every minute counts when treatment is needed.
Established as Baton Rouge Specialty Medical Center in June 2003 and renamed Promise Specialty Hospital of Baton Rouge on September 17, 2003, the hospital is now known as Promise Hospital of Baton Rouge and is located on two campuses.
