Referrals & Admissions

Hospital Inpatient

For inpatient rehabilitatioin services, we are pleased to admit those individuals who can benefit from three hours or more of therapy nearly every day. Therefore, we require a referral by a physician or an evaluation by a Casa Colina physician or nurse liaison prior to admitting a new patient. All medical-surgical patients require a referral from their physician for a scheduled surgery, intensive care or medical-surgical stay.

If you think you or a loved one could benefit from our inpatient care, please talk to your doctor or call 909/596-7733, ext. 3900 or toll-free 866/724-4127, ext. 3900.

Hospital Outpatient

In most instances, you will need a physician referral to schedule an appointment. You can typically be scheduled for an appointment within 2 to 3 days, or immediately if your condition is urgent. In order to speed up the pre-admitting process, we'll verify your insurance information and will make every effort to contact you to discuss your coverage benefits prior to your first appointment.

Please arrive 15 minutes before your appointment time to register at the Tamkin Outpatient Center. You'll need to bring your insurance card as well as the name and telephone number of your physician.

For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call 909/596-7733, ext. 3500 or toll-free 866/724-4127, ext. 3500.

We accept adults and adolescents between the ages of 18 to 59 with appropriate diagnoses. Age waivers are available for clients that do not fall in the appropriate age range on a case-by-case basis. We usually respond to each referral within 24 hours to expedite the admission process. Referrals are evaluated on a case-by-case basis and determined by individual need, through interviews, and review of medical records. Our admission liaisons will work with you, your family members, doctors and insurance providers throughout the referral/admissions process.

An application must be completed both by the individual's family and primary care physician. Once this paperwork has been completed and returned to ADHC, an intake appointment will be scheduled. The intake appointment takes place at ADHC, and must be attended by the individual and his or her caregivers. The paperwork and guidelines of the program are reviewed at the intake appointment. Although individuals can self refer, their application paperwork includes two forms that must be completed by the primary care physician. The individual must also have a current TB test.
