Referral Process

Our healing environment can help

you return to your best level.


 

Patients referred to CareLink will be evaluated by a medical professional to assure that they meet admission criteria. CareLink confers with the patient's personal physician to determine what is best for the patient and will recommend alternative placement if admission criteria are not met. All pre-admission screenings are free of charge. Patients may inquire about CareLink themselves or may be referred by their physician, friends or family members, social worker, case manager, allied health professional, discharge planner or insurance company.
