Admissions from Home
If you are seeking admission from home, or an assisted living facility, it is critical for you to speak with our Admissions department BEFORE arriving at our facility. They will assist you with obtaining the required documents and information necessary for admission.
Admissions from Another Health Care Provider
If you are seeking admission from another health care provider, such as a skilled nursing facility or from an acute care hospital, your current hospital social worker or case manager will usually be involved in arranging your admission with our facility. You may give them the above contact information, and after speaking with our Admissions Department, they will send us a “Referral” which will contain your health history and demographic information. They may also assist us in arranging transportation to our facility.
To assist you in the admissions process, we will gladly facilitate the transportation process. Depending on your location, current needs and required level of care, we may offer to pick you up with our properly equipped transport vans or will arrange for critical care transport through our network of ambulance services. Depending on your insurance or Medicare situation, this can often be arranged at no additional costs to you.
