Transferring to Our Hospital
If you have determined that a rehabilitation hospital is right for your recovery, you or your physician should contact our admissions office. A representative from our hospital will come to you to perform a pre-admission screening within 24 hours and can coordinate your transfer to our hospital.
The typical referral process:
- A request is made for a patient to be evaluated by one of our rehabilitation liaisons.
- The liaison conducts a screening to determine if the patient meets criteria for admission to an acute inpatient rehabilitation hospital. The screening includes a chart review, a discussion with healthcare personnel and a meeting with the patient and their family to address pertinent information, concerns and questions.
- The next available appropriate bed is offered to the patient. Often this process occurs within hours.
