Transferring to a HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital

Contact the Admissions Department at a HealthSouth hospital near you. A HealthSouth representative will come to you to perform a pre-admission screening and coordinate your transfer to our hospital.

Typical referral process:

  • A request is made for a patient to be evaluated by a HealthSouth rehabilitation liaison.
  • The liaison conducts a screening to determine if the patient meets criteria for admission to a 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.
  • If you have commercial insurance, (including Medicare Advantage plans), in most cases the insurance company will need to approve your admission, before you can be transferred to HealthSouth.
