Admissions

  • At Riverside Rehabilitation Hospital, we've made the admissions process as simple as possible for our patients, their families, and referral sources, including physicians, case managers and insurance or managed care companies. Our goal is to enable patients to begin their rehabilitation as soon as they are medically stable and able to participate in our highly specialized programs of care.

    Patients can be referred for admission directly by their physician, social worker or family member. Patients and family members may call our admissions department directly at (757) 534-9700 or (757) 928-8000. If you or your loved one are in an inpatient hospital setting, you can also request that one our liaisons visit for you for an admission evaluation.

    Your case manager can make a referral by faxing the following documentation to (757) 928-8017:

    • History and physical
    • Physician and nursing notes
    • Physical, occupational, and speech therapy Notes
    • Medications
    • Lab reports
    • Hospital FAX cover sheet

    The team at Riverside Rehabilitation Hospital will review your medical records and determine admission based on medical history, needs and your ability to participate in three hours of therapy and individual rehabilitation goals. We help patients determine the best level of care for their recovery, and make recommendations based on our evaluation.

    For additional questions about our admissions process, please call (757) 534-9700 or (757) 928-8000.
