For Case Managers


Do you have a patient you’d like to refer to St. John’s Sub-Acute Unit?

We receive referrals, and routinely accept patients from as far north as San Luis Obispo, inland to Bakersfield/Kern County, and south to Los Angeles and beyond. At times, we have accepted patients who are in acute hospitals in other geographic areas. In order to help support expectations, develop a good working relationship, and in order to educate family members about the differences between acute care and sub-acute care, we request that families come for a tour prior to acceptance of the patient.

We welcome visits from hospital case management staff. If you have any questions or would like to set up an appointment to visit, please contact the Sub-Acute Unit clinical liaison at 805.389.5956.
