If you wish to be admitted, a hospice registered nurse. conducts a physical assessment, provides you with specific information and answers any questions you may have. A plan of care is designed specifically for you. If you have additional questions, please contact Baptist Hospice at (334) 395-5000 and let us help you in any way we can.
