Our faculty provide consultation services for patients in the acute hospital setting. The patient's physician may request a rehabilitation consultation by paging the UNC Rehabilitation Center intake nurse at 919-216-1795 or calling 919-966-5929.

A physiatrist from the Department of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation will determine the patient's eligiability for admission to the acute rehab hospital based on specific criteria. If the patient does not meet admission criteria, our physiatrist will make other recommendations for services to meet rehabilitation needs.
