Inpatient Admission and Referral Information

At an inpatient rehabilitation facility (IRF), the clinical teams coordinate medical and rehabilitation treatment in order to provide an active and ongoing disciplinary approach to intensive rehabilitation. Patients must be able to participate in a minimum of three hours of therapy per day.

Inpatient referrals may be made by physicians, discharge planners, case managers, healthcare professionals, insurance representatives, families, and patients. 

Admission nurses gather the information needed to evaluate your rehabilitation needs. They explain the rehabilitation process to you and your family, and they assist with verifying insurance coverage and obtaining pre-certification.

Referral sources will be informed of pre-admission assessment results within 24 hours of evaluation.  Following admission, we provide the referring physician with complete evaluation and treatment reports, and recommendations for care after discharge.

We participate with Medicare and Medicaid, and accept most insurance plans. Financial counseling is available for patients with no medical coverage.

Patients accepted into our inpatient program will have met the following criteria: 

  • They can benefit from 24-hour physician availability.
  • They require a combination of physical, occupational, and/or speech therapy.
  • They are able to tolerate and benefit from intensive therapy.
  • They have a realistic discharge plan.
