Referral, Admission & Transfer Information

Staffed around-the-clock by nurses, CHRISTUS Health Patient Intake Center (PIC) is the only hospital admitting service in San Antonio to offer high-level clinical expertise 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The PIC is specifically designed to speed-up patient admissions and provide extra services and conveniences to physicians and patients. The Center offers:

  • A one-call-does-it-all patient admission process.
  • Nurses on duty 24/7 to quickly handle inpatient and outpatient admissions, bed assignments and availability, and transfers. Admission orders are taken over the phone so the nursing unit knows what to do as soon as the patient arrives on the floor.
