New Direct Admission Service

Patients visiting their doctor who need to be admitted to Bridgeport Hospital but do not need emergency care can expedite the process through the hospital’s new Direct Admission Service. Instead of the patient being admitted through the Emergency Department, a physician’s staff can call 203-384-BEDS (2337). The patient then proceeds to Admitting to check in. In addition to benefitting the patient, the service improves ED efficiency.
