If you need to make a referral for a patient or student you work with, you’ve come to the right place. Oaklawn’s Access Center exists to help anyone in our community connect with the services they need – whether that’s here or somewhere else.
To make a referral to our Access Center, call:
- Elkhart County: 574-533-1234
- St. Joseph County: 574-283-1234
To fax a referral:
- Elkhart County: 574-537-2697
- St. Joseph County: 574-283-1361
Due to the volume of referrals we receive, we request that the patient you are referring follow-up with us in 24 hours to discuss the services they may need. We will work with them to determine if Oaklawn is the best fit, or we may refer them to a private clinician in the community.
We speak English and Spanish and have access to interpreters for other languages. Regular hours are from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, but the center takes emergency requests after hours.
If you believe the person you’re calling about is a danger to themselves or others, call 911 or take them to your local emergency room if it is safe to do so.
