Once a patient is referred, a clinical liaison completes an onsite screening to determine the patient’s medical needs and appropriateness for inpatient rehabilitation. You must have a qualifying diagnosis that requires 24-hour nursing care, and have the need for a coordinated intensive therapy program with two or more skilled rehabilitation therapies.

For qualified patients, transfers typically occur within 24 to 48 hours. The Inpatient Rehabilitation Center accepts most forms of private insurance, as well as Medicare.
