Red River Hospital accepts direct admissions from a variety of referral sources in the community. Our intake staff is standing by around the clock to pre-screen the direct admissions, consult with our physicians, verify the insurance benefits for you, and, as needed, arrange for transport for inpatient admissions at no additional cost to the patient. Our staff will be able to discuss our programs with you so you can determine whether what we offer is the best fit for your patient. You can also obtain additional information in order to present your recommendations for the referral to you patient.
