Access to outpatient services
California Rehabilitation Institute offers a unique continuum of services and continuity of care from our inpatient hospital to outpatient. To help reinforce and build on the gains made during your inpatient stay, you may continue your rehabilitation with outpatient care. Your physician or clinical care team will recommend the outpatient therapies and other treatment that you may need or benefit from upon discharge from the hospital.
Our outpatient center, conveniently located at California Rehabilitation Institute, provides state-of-the-art equipment combined with physical, occupational and speech therapies to help you reach your rehabilitation goals.
Our programs. Your progress.
As an outpatient, you’ll benefit from the same high quality care available in the rehabilitation hospital.
At California Rehabilitation Institute’s outpatient center, we offer a scope of programs and specialized services to meet your needs including:
- Physical therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Speech therapy
- Recovery and reconditioning
- Amputee rehabilitation
- Neurologic rehabilitation
- Vestibular therapy
- Vision therapy
- Lymphedema therapy
- Stroke rehabilitation
New patients are asked to arrive 30 minutes prior to their first appointment to complete the necessary paperwork. Our patient service specialist will assist you and collect any required co-payments. Please bring your insurance cards to help ensure accurate claim(s) submissions.
Be sure to bring:
- Insurance cards
- Photo identification or driver's license
- Reading glasses, if needed
- Personal equipment – wheelchair, walker, cane, braces or other assistive devices
- Copy of any home exercise program you may have
- List of your current medications
Please notify your therapist(s) of any prescription or non-prescription medications you take regularly including dosage, frequency and the condition for which it is prescribed. We will review your drug regimen so everyone involved in your care understands your needs.
New patients will meet with a member of California Rehabilitation Institute's outpatient clinical team who will conduct a comprehensive evaluation, discuss specific needs and rehabilitation goals and develop an individualized treatment plan. The length of treatment and frequency of visits are based on several factors including:
- Specific injury/condition
- Physician recommendations
- Therapist's evaluation and recommended treatment plan
To achieve your rehabilitation goals and optimize recovery, you will be given a schedule of your therapy appointments. It is important that you attend all scheduled sessions. We ask that you arrive on time for your sessions. If you are running late, please call and we’ll adjust your schedule accordingly. Every effort will be made to accommodate you at a later time.
If you need to cancel an appointment, please notify us at least 24 hours in advance. If we are unable to take your call personally, leave a message with your name, phone number and reason for cancellation. A member of our staff will contact you to reschedule.
In the event of any change in your medical or physical status, such as a fall at home or in the community, an emergency room visit or hospitalization, you must report this to both your referring physician and California Rehabilitation Institute therapist. You will need written medical clearance from your physician to continue therapy.
With your safety and comfort in mind, we recommend you wear loose- fitting, comfortable exercise clothes and rubber-soled shoes, preferably sneakers, to help you maintain your footing during therapy sessions.
California Rehabilitation Institute accepts most Medicare, Medicaid and managed care plans, as well as workers’ compensation, no-fault and other insurance providers. We will verify your insurance prior to scheduling an appointment. Please speak with your insurance carrier or employer for coverage specific questions.
