Inpatient Admit From Home Program

Admit From Home

Allied Services Scranton Rehab Hospital and Wilkes-Barre Rehab Hospital offer a program designed to address a growing community need: Patients who are declining functionally at home, but do not qualify for an acute admission.

Patients can be admitted directly from home. The program is designed to improve the functional status and increase the patient’s chances of returning home safely. Medicare regulations require patients to have a qualifying three-day hospital stay prior to admission to a skilled nursing facility. The patient’s stay at our Scranton Rehab Hospital or Wilkes-Barre Rehab Hospital will meet this requirement.
