Refer a Patient

It is important to us to make the referral process centered on you and our patients. Our Admissions Liaisons partner with healthcare professionals to ensure a smooth and positive transition. We are recognized for advanced medical care and rehabilitation in pulmonary care, acquired brain injury, medically-complex pediatrics, neuromuscular disorders, spinal cord injury, comprehensive heart failure and comprehensive inpatient and outpatient treatment for children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorder.
