Outpatient Admissions

  • Outpatient rehabilitation services are provided through Select Physical Therapy centers that operate under a joint venture between Select Medical and Pinnacle Health.

    If you are preparing to begin your care at one of our local centers, here's what to expect.

    Prior to Initial Visit

    Most patients come to us with a prescription for physical therapy that was issued by their physician -- this prescription is similar in form to what you take to the drugstore for medicine -- and includes recommendations for treatment.

    Our staff will verify your insurance and our participation in your specific insurance plan.

    Initial Evaluation

    We usually recommend that patients wear looser-fitting exercise clothing and sneakers for maximum comfort.

    Please arrive 10-15 minutes early to allow time to complete your new patient registration forms, or take a few moments now to review and print the forms. When you arrive at the center, the patient service specialist will greet you and review the forms. The specialist will schedule all of your appointments and collect your co-payment (if applicable) at each visit.

    You will meet with a physical or occupational/hand therapist who will evaluate your injury or condition, discuss your goals and specific needs and develop an individualized treatment plan.

    Next steps

    The length of your treatment plan and frequency of visits is based on your specific injury/condition, the physician prescription, your insurance plan and the therapist’s recommended treatment plan.
