Open Admission and Nondiscrimination Policy
As a recipient of federal financial assistance, it is the policy of Presence Life Connections, which is part of Presence Health, to admit and treat all patients without regard to race, color, creed, national origin, age or handicap.
The same requirements for admissions are applied to all persons. Patients and residents are assigned within our nursing and rehabilitation centers and retirement communities without regard to race, color, creed, national origin, age or handicap. There is no distinction in eligibility for, or in the manner of, providing any patient service within a Presence Life Connections facility.
All persons and organizations that have occasion to refer patients or residents for admission or to recommend a Presence Life Connections facility are advised to do so without regard to the patient’s or resident’s race, color, creed, national origin, age or handicap.
This statement is in accordance with the provisions of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Age Discrimination Act of 1975, and Regulations of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services issued pursuant to these statutes at Title 45 Code of the Federal Regulations Parts 80, 84 and 91 and other agency guidelines.
