Staff will verify receipt of the packet.

Interviews are generally conducted during normal business hours (weekdays 9:00am-5:00pm). Follow up with the hospital or other provider is conducted as needed to verify information. If the prospective patient is admitted to the facility, a bed will be held until the patient is discharged from the hospital. There are generally beds available. Patients may transfer between the Buena Park, Douglas Park, and Old Town facilities as long as there are beds available.
