Admission Information

We understand that the decision to choose nursing home care for a loved one can be very difficult and emotional. That's why our Admissions Coordinators are available Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. at (412) 422-6214 to answer any questions you may have or to provide their assistance with the admissions process.

Admission to any Kane Regional Center, as well as Kane's specialty units for short-term rehabilitation or dementia, can be as simple as a phone call. The Admissions Coordinator will request certain information including, but not limited to: Social Security, health insurance and health history. The Coordinator will determine if we can meet your care needs. The Kane Regional Centers accept Medicare, Medical Assistance, Security Blue, US Healthcare Medicare, private insurances, and private pay.

If an applicant is currently in the hospital, the hospital social worker/discharge planner can make the referral to the Kane Admissions Department.
