The admission process is designed to assist residents and their families in accommodating and reviewing individual needs. Our staff is available during the entire process to answer questions and provide information concerning all the services available at Embassy Healthcare facilities as well as services available in the surrounding community.
The Admission Process:
- Tour the facility or make contact with a staff member from the Admissions Department.
- If you or a loved one is currently in the hospital please contact the Admissions Department or have the social worker/case manager contact the facility.
- If you or a loved one is not currently in the hospital or in another facility, you will need to be seen by your physician and obtain a medical history and physical no more than five days before admission.
- If coming from home or residential living you must obtain a chest x-ray no more than ninety days before the date of admission.
- If eligible, you should apply for financial assistance (i.e. Medicaid) before the date of admission. If you have already filed for Medicaid, we request that you supply us with a copy of the Medicaid Application or a copy of the Medicaid card. If you need assistance applying for Medicaid, we can assist.
