Texas Star accepts referrals 24/7 and admissions are available until 11:00pm. After 11:00pm, admissions must come from an emergency room where a doc-to-doc can be completed.

Admissions may be coordinated by a patient, family member or physician. The admissions process generally begins with a confidential phone call or online inquiry.

Next, medical records and history are collected and insurance benefits determined. Then an admission date and time is scheduled. After admission, a physician meets with the patient and they are given an in depth assessment to determine level of care.

To initiate the referral process, please call 512-462-6729.
