Hospital Rehab Admission
Most people are admitted to an IRF from an acute-care hospital. If you wish to be considered for admission to Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital Boston or Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital Cape Cod, please notify your discharge planner from the acute-care hospital providing your current care.
In some cases, individuals can be admitted to an IRF without having to stay in the acute-care hospital. Learn about our Direct Admissions Program.
