About Community Hospital of Bremen

24-bed critical access hospital employing 170 associates and serving Bremen, Indiana, and the surrounding communities. Bremen Hospital provides exceptional care, close to home. And because Bremen Hospital is part of Beacon Health System, patients have access to providers, resources and services from across the entire health system. But with such high-quality care right in our own community, you may not need to leave Bremen.

The hospital provides the community:

COVID-19 In-Car Screening

Testing is available Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

NOTE: You will need to have a doctor’s order BEFORE being screened.

Call (574) 546-8188 from your car once you arrive on site. You will be asked some screening questions. Based on your answers you may or may not be tested. If you are not tested, you may be given other directions for care.

If you are tested, and depending on the severity of our symptoms, you may be asked to go home and quarantine or go to the hospital until your results have been received. 

NOTE: Every patient tested is called with their results whether they are positive or negative.

Our ER remains open for all emergencies. Screenings are performed through the in-car screening process ONLY.

Emergency Department in Bremen, Indiana

Bremen Hospital’s Emergency Department is open and staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We provide affordable, personalized, quality emergency care to the community, with an average wait time of about 10 minutes. 

The Emergency Department is located on the east side of the building with a separate walk-in and ambulance entrance. Wheelchairs and assistance are available for those who need help entering the hospital.

Our physicians and nursing staff are highly trained in emergency and urgent care. Physicians at Bremen Hospital also practice emergency care at Memorial Hospital of South Bend, the only Level II trauma center in our region. This means you have highly skilled experts right at home, and our years of experience and caring attitudes allow us to understand and meet all of your needs.

With our enhanced ER services and teams, we’re able to keep patients close to home for their recovery. For cases requiring specialized care, patients have access to all other experts in the Beacon system. When necessary, patients can be transported to another Beacon critical care facility by ambulance or helicopter, depending on the severity and patient needs. Our Code STEMI program allows us to transfer acute heart attack patients who require specialized care to Memorial Hospital for rapid cardiac catheterization. 

Emergency & Trauma Care

Visiting Hours

Notice: To support CDC recommendations, there are visitor restrictions in place at Bremen Hospital. View them here.

24 hours a day, seven days a week. One person is welcome to spend the night in the patient's room, unless the patient's condition warrants additional family time. The patient's condition may require isolation and, in those cases, visitation may be limited. We encourage family members of pediatric patients to stay with the infant/child at all times, if possible. Each room features a couch that transforms into a bed for your comfort.

Requesting Your Medical Records

There are a few ways you can request copies of your medical records, depending on the type of information you need. Learn more about how to request your medical records.

Patient Portal

To sign up for your patient portal, ask a Beacon associate when you’re admitted to or discharged from the hospital. Access the Bremen Hospital Patient Portal.

Patient Registration

We strive to make patient registration as simple and convenient as possible, while making sure the information collected is accurate in order to avoid any billing issues later in the process. We have registrars in multiple areas of the hospital to assist you. It is important that you be prepared with all of your demographic information and your insurance card(s) when you come to register. It is our policy to verify all of your information at each visit and to copy or scan your insurance card(s) each time you are registered. The filing of your insurance claims is based on the information provided at the time of registration. Corrections or updates to information after the time of service are the patient’s responsibility.

Inpatient Information

The Medical/Surgical unit consists of 18 private patient rooms, each with its own private bathroom. Each room has its own thermostat that can be adjusted to meet your specific needs. Our average nurse-to-patient ratio is one nurse to four patients.

Swing Bed Program

The Swing Bed Program is an intensive program designed to help individuals who no longer need acute hospital care, but need some short-term rehabilitation before safely returning home. This program allows your physician to change, or “swing,” your level of care from acute to skilled rehabilitation while you remain in-hospital, close to home.

Conditions treated through the program include:

  • Extended IV therapy needs
  • Orthopedic surgeries (hip replacements, fractures, post-surgical procedures)
  • Neurological disorders (stroke)
  • Generalized weakness due to CHF, COPD, pneumonia and other chronic conditions

Food and Cafe

The Nutrition Services Department provides nutrition and food services for patients, family members and visitors. Nutrition counseling by a registered dietitian is offered, as well as weight management classes. We are pleased to offer room service to our patients, with a variety of menu choices and flexibility in meal times. Family members and visitors may order a guest tray as well. We offer the following therapeutic diets: heart healthy, consistent carbohydrate, GI soft/low residue, mechanical soft, renal, and pureed, in addition to various liquid consistencies. We also offer a special congratulatory dinner for our new parents!

Bremen Hospital Cafe is open to serve you from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. every day and is located just past the main lobby. Outdoor dining available, weather permitting.

Gift Shop

The Bremen retail shop is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings.

In addition to a selection of cards, books and get well items, the gift shop offers new baby gifts and a unique selection of merchandise, including seasonal items. A variety of snacks are available as well. The gift shop is staffed daily by hospital auxiliary members.

Volunteering

The Bremen Hospital Auxiliary is a volunteer organization promoting the advancement of welfare for the hospital through service and fundraising. The auxiliary meets on the fourth Monday of the month at 7 p.m. in the hospital cafe. Volunteer opportunities include: gift shop workers, light gardening, pie and candy sales, Pack-A-Backpack Campaign and the Holiday Bazaar. To become a member or receive more information regarding the auxiliary, please contact Debbie O'Keefe at (574) 546-8009.
