HealthSouth does not require a referral to be admitted. Anyone can refer you to our facility, including yourself, a family member a physician or another hospital.
To make a referral or for more information:
Contact our Admissions Department at (814) 878-1288 or (814) 878-1200. One of our Rehabilitation Liaisons will respond to perform a pre-admission screening and coordinate transfer to our facility. We have an oncall liasan and a physician available 24 hours/day to take admission information.
The hospital provides free home screenings for individuals who might benefit from rehabilitation. To facilitate a screening, the individual, a family member or a healthcare professional should call (814) 878-1288 to request a home evaluation. A liaison will visit the individual's home, complete the screening and make appropriate recommendations.
Rehabilitation is covered in full or part by most health insurance plans, including Medicare and Medicaid. The hospital has contracts with most major insurance companies and is willing to negotiate with other companies as needed.
When possible, we ask that patients be admitted between 8:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. This allows patients to become oriented to their new surroundings and meet the staff.
