After the Hospital

Our Senior Care Liaison will help you find the right place for your continued recovery. From coordinating extra help back home or moving into another environment, we can help. The Senior Care team can also offer a list of different living and recovery centers such as assisted living facilities or skilled nursing homes, including preferred partners we highly recommend for their excellent quality scores. No matter where you choose to go next, your regular doctor will remain in charge of your care every step of the way — even after you leave the hospital.
