Vibra Specialty Hospital of Portland is a 100% referral based facility. This means that every patient who is transferred into our hospital has been referred from a physician, case manager, insurance company or family member who has a loved one at another facility. Facilities from which a patient can be referred include:

  • Short term Acute Care Hospitals-ICU/Telemetry/Medical-Surgical units
  • Skilled nursing facilities
  • Aquatic therapy
  • Emergency room
  • Acute rehabilitation facilities
  • Traditional care units
  • Foster homes
  • Physician offices
  • Home
  • Insurance company case managers

Referral Process – It’s Easy

  • A referral is made by placing a call to the designated liaison or by calling our admissions office at 503-257-5667 to request a patient evaluation.
  • A clinical liaison completes an on-site evaluation and verifies insurance eligibility – usually the same day. The liaison is happy to meet with you and your family to discuss information about Vibra and answer any questions you may have.
  • Authorization from the insurance company is obtained.
  • A team of clinicians at Vibra will review the patient’s clinical assessment in preparation for the transfer to Vibra.
  • Any special equipment or service needs are determined prior to arrival.
  • The clinical liaison works with the referring facility to ensure a seamless transfer to Vibra Specialty Hospital.
