Referrals are made by doctors, parents, acute care discharge planners, or community providers to one of our nurse clinical care managers to help families navigate the admissions process for inpatient or outpatient care. We work quickly to gather medical and insurance information to review and to formulate a plan that is best for each child and family. Preadmission tours of the inpatient unit are welcome.
