In November of 2005, The Hospice of Baton Rouge opened the doors of The Butterfly Wing®, the first inpatient unit in the Baton Rouge area. A stay at The Butterﬂy Wing® is an option when patients need more acute care including symptom control and pain management in a closely monitored setting, 24/7.
The Butterfly Wing® is an eight-bed facility located in Baton Rouge General Medical Center Midcity that provides short-term supervised care for patients with acute needs. Patients are eligible for the General Inpatient Level of Care when round-the-clock care is necessary to manage pain and control symptoms or treatments for a patient's needs that cannot be reasonably provided at home. The Butterfly Wing® provides the same full range of medical, emotional, social and spiritual services our home care patients receive, in a setting that permits more intensive monitoring.
"I have been singing the praises of The Butterfly Wing® to all who will listen. What a wonderful gift for this community! Your staff is excellent. They were able to control his pain and anxiety. We, as a family, were very comfortable. I am so very thankful that The Butterfly Wing® was there for us! "
