A Promise Healthcare Hospital
Welcome to Promise Hospital of Fort Myers
When you or a loved one needs a longer recovery period from the most complex of medical conditions, we are here for you.
Your treatment plan is directed by your physician and provided by an interdisciplinary medical team and staff. Our licensed clinicians, nurses, therapists and staff support your physician's directives 24/7. We include your family as an important part of the recovery process throughout your hospital stay to help manage your present and future healthcare needs.

With a physician's referral, we admit patients from almost any setting
within the healthcare continuum, including:
• Physician's offices
• Hospital intensive care units
• Hospital medical and surgical units
• Rehabilitation hospitals
• Skilled nursing facilities
• Assisted living facilities
Our patients are admitted with respiratory or ventilator-dependent conditions, need advanced wound care treatment, or suffer from other medically complex conditions.
We coordinate a medical evaluation, complete insurance verification/pre-certification and arrange transportation with the goal of admission promptly after the admission call. 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 our LTAC hospital a smooth process. We accept Medicare, worker's compensation and most insurance plans.
Patients who require complex medical and respiratory care, including ventilator weaning, will benefit from the specialized, comprehensive inpatient respiratory care provided by Promise Hospital's Cardiopulmonary Program. This program serves young-adult through elderly patients, with diagnoses such as pneumonia, COPD, emphysema, bronchitis, bronchiectasis, Guillain-Barre syndrome, chronic and acute respiratory failure, and pulmonary fibrosis.
Advanced Wound Care Program
Patients with complex wounds may have associated medical conditions that often necessitate a high level of inpatient care for an extended period of time. Our medical team will treat the wound and underlying conditions that contributed to it, such as uncontrolled diabetes, malnutrition, functional impairments and poor vascularization, to prevent return of the wound.
Promise Hospital is dedicated to providing comprehensive rehabilitation services despite the lines and tubes that sometimes accompany patients. Taking into account the necessary precautions, we take an aggressive approach to therapy with the belief that physical activity helps the body to recover more quickly from respiratory and medical conditions that impair normal every day function.
