Recognizing the important role other providers play in our patients’ lives, Optima Specialty Hospital is proud to work with professionals throughout our community. We are happy to collaborate with those who refer potential patients to our hospital, and are eager to coordinate care as we provide the treatment that will improve the lives of those who are referred to us for treatment
With the patient’s consent, we can keep referents abreast of the patient’s progress while he or she is in our care, and we can also produce discharge plans that include referents as follow-up services once a patient has completed inpatient or outpatient services with us.
Additionally, we welcome referrals from individuals in the community who feel that a person could benefit from the care that we provide. In addition to referrals from family members or other caring loved ones, the following are among those who frequently recommend Optima as the place to receive high quality mental health treatment:
- General practitioners
- Specialty doctors
- Social workers
- Outpatient providers
- Other hospitals
A referral can be made at any time of the day. Our helpful admissions staff is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to discuss the needs of a potential patient, and can work with the referent to facilitate an admission to our hospital. If for any reason the needs of the potential patient cannot be met by treatment within one of our levels of care, admissions staff can provide the referent with referrals to a provider who can supply the treatment that is needed.
Optima Specialty Hospital strives to be an invaluable resource to the community, and is prepared to help patients and referents in any way that we can. If you feel that you know someone who would benefit from the services that we provide, please feel free contact us at your convenience.
