Admissions at Baptist Medical Center

You've recently been told by your doctor that you require an inpatient or outpatient hospital procedure or surgery as part of your treatment.

Baptist provides a simple preadmission program that can help reduce any anxiety you may be experiencing and make everything as smooth as possible on the day of the procedure.

Step 1: Call 968-1400 to schedule a preadmission session. Choose "1" from the menu for "General Scheduling."

Depending on what procedure your doctor has ordered, you may require advance testing such as EKGs, chest x-rays and lab work. When you call 968-1400, Baptist professionals will set up an appointment with the staff in Preadmissions to complete all necessary paperwork and tests you may need.

You may wish to call before you leave your doctor's office. In many cases, you will be able to get a preadmission appointment immediately.

Preadmission appointments are available Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Step 2: Come to Baptist for your pre-admission session.

When you arrive for your preadmission session, you will meet with the preadmissions clerk, who can help you complete all the necessary paperwork for your procedure. After completing necessary forms, you will then meet with a nurse to review your medical history and complete any necessary tests. The entire process takes approximately one hour.

When you come, be sure to bring:

  • an accurate list of all medications you are currently taking
  • list of any known foods and/or drugs to which you are allergic
  • your insurance card(s)
  • any papers given to you by your doctor
  • a photo ID for positive identification

During your preadmission session, we encourage you to ask our staff any questions you might have concerning your upcoming treatment. Knowing what to expect can greatly reduce any anxiety you may be feeling.

Step 3: Report to Admissions in the main lobby at the time of your procedure.

When you arrive for your procedure, please park in the parking garage, then report to the Admissions Desk in the main lobby of Baptist Medical Center.

Thank you for choosing Baptist Medical Center

Knowing that all the paper work has been done and that you'll be admitted quickly and effortlessly will help you to relax as your surgery or procedure date nears. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, you will receive the peace of mind that comes from knowing you're always in excellent hands at Baptist Medical Center.
