Inpatient Admissions Process

Depending on your needs, our patient care coordinators will work with you and your physicians to facilitate your admission to the Inpatient Rehabilitation Units at one of our three hospital locations:

Please note that a physician's referral is needed for admission to the inpatient rehabilitation units at any of our locations. In addition, your insurance provider may have specific guidelines or require preferred providers in order to cover your needs. For more information on the admissions process, and questions you may consider asking your insurance provider, please refer to pages two and three of our Patient Advisory Council's manual, Rehab and Beyond.
