What is the Admissions Process?

1. Call or submit an online referral

We have made the referral admission process very easy for you. Just complete this form and one of our team members will be in touch with you within 24 hours. Please be sure to include your name, phone number and how we can assist you.

2. Onsite assessment

Our nurse liaisons work closely with physicians and hospital staff to make the transition to Madonna as smooth as possible. When able, we will conduct an on-site assessment to gather clinical information, meet the patient and family and complete a clinical assessment to determine the most appropriate level of care and program.

3. Get to know Madonna

We invite you to tour our facilities, meet our medical staff and learn more about the rehab experience.

Making the Right Choice

There is a difference between a rehabilitation hospital and a rehabilitation unit. When searching for a complex medical program or a acute rehabilitation program for your loved one, it’s important to know what’s important to ask. 

At Madonna, we take a transdisciplinary approach to rehabilitation. It’s more than therapy, it’s about helping people resume their life roles by focusing on the whole person.

Insurance Partners

Madonna accepts patients with commercial insurance, Medicare, Medicaid and self pay. We will also work with insurance on single case agreements. Contact Sharon Votava, Director of Payor Relations at 402.413.4643.

At Madonna, our team of experts is committed to helping patients and families make the most informed decision about where to go and what to look for from a rehabilitation hospital. Oftentimes the decision can impact patients and their family members for years to come.

Our process includes conducting an on-site assessment, allowing us to evaluate the unique medical and rehabilitation needs of each patient. The team meets with patients and their family members to review the patient’s medical condition, as well as discuss the recovery process.

After the information has been gathered, a comprehensive assessment will be completed in order for us to determine the most appropriate level of care and your eligibility for admission based on insurance coverage.

Once a decision has been made, we will coordinate the transfer from the acute care hospital, making the process as seamless as possible.
