Bethel Health Care Center

Our Admission Process


Patients can be referred to our facility by a physician, social worker, discharge planner, case manager, other allied health professional, or a family member.

Prospective patients interested in exploring our programs and services, may call our admissions office directly. We encourage anyone having elective surgery, to contact us as soon as possible after the surgery is scheduled to arrange for priority admission.

All prospective patients will be assessed to determine their appropriateness and ability to undergo a program of therapy. This ensures a smooth transition to our facility. Rehabilitation services are covered by most health maintenance organizations and insurance companies, including Medicare.

Please call us anytime if you would like more information, a specific question answered, clarification about insurance coverage, or a tour of our facility.
