We assign a dedicated case manager to each patient floor to assist patients
and their families. Your case manager can answer questions and address
concerns, during your hospitalization and in preparation for discharge.
Your case manager will work closely with your physician and the hospital
staff to ensure that you receive the best care possible. Case managers
can help with:
- Facilitating discharge planning with your physician and coordinating home
health care or, if needed, your transfer to a skilled, intermediate or
residential care facility.
- Offering support and assisting in coordinating services for patients in
our rehabilitation units who require physical, speech and occupational therapy.
- Trained social workers along with experienced RN’s are able to facilitate
options for discharge planning needs.
- Providing you with community agencies to better supply with support and
education to both patients and their families. They can also help patients
prepare advance directives, living wills or durable powers of attorney.
