Case Management

Case Management

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.
