We know that hospital stays can sometimes be a very overwhelming event. Our Case Management Department engages the entire spectrum of health care providers in order to minimize the difficulty for our patients and their families. We have a well-trained and professional staff who will work with physicians, nurses, physical therapists and any other members of the health care team to identify and coordinate alternative care or services that will assist in recovery. They will also assist with continuing care arrangements that may be necessary following discharge from the hospital.
Services arranged by our staff might include helping with home health or hospice referrals, medical equipment, rehabilitation services and nursing home placement. The Case Management Department may also supply other information and referral services which connect the patient with appropriate community organizations that may be of assistance.
Feel free to communicate your needs to them at any point during your hospital stay.
