To ensure an efficient referral process, UPMC Skilled Nursing Facilities has a Centralized Admissions Office (CAO). Referrals are received via ECIN or by fax (412-688-3910), and are reviewed for appropriate placement based on the patient’s needs* and the current bed availability.
Centralized Admissions Office hours are Monday – Friday, 7:30 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Referrals and admissions are accepted from an inpatient setting, an Emergency Department, a Doctor’s office, and from home.
Admissions are accepted 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.**
**Off-hour referrals and admissions are handled directly by the facilities.
