For Inpatient Referrals to Gaylord Hospital, call the Admissions Department at (203) 284-2810, use AllScripts, or FAX 203-284-2811. Gaylord's Admissions Department can answer initial questions and have a Regional Healthcare Manager, who is a registered nurse, review the patient's clinical needs, conduct a physical evaluation and determine whether the patient is appropriate for admission to Gaylord. A dedicated admissions nurse conducts chart reviews for patients located outside of our geographic area.
