Home / For Healthcare Professionals / Refer a Patient Refer a Patient Rehabilitation Institute of Michigan (RIM) provides expert care for patients who are ready to be discharged from the hospital but are not ready to go home following a disabling injury or illness. Our goal is to prepare our patients to return home independently or with assistance from family members or other care providers. Patients can be referred for admission directly by their physician, social worker or family member. Admission to an inpatient rehab program requires the potential patient to meet certain qualification requirements. Previous medical history, current medical condition and the need for and the ability to participate in an intensive therapy program, determine whether a patient can be accepted. Referral Process Fax updated medical and rehab documentation, including therapy notes to 313-745-1242. A RIM physician will carefully review the medical records and determine admission based on the medical history and needs; the ability to participate in three hours of therapy, and the individual rehabilitation goals. RIM works with many insurance carriers. Our admission coordinators will work with the patient's provider to determine the benefit coverage and obtain authorization. Financial counseling is available for families who may need to make alternate financial arrangements. RIM admits patients 7 days a week. The patient will receive the next appropriate bed.
