Hospitals used to be a place that only treated seriously ill patients. That’s not the case these days.
Today, hospitals are focusing more and more on keeping the community healthy and helping those with chronic disease live full lives.
I’m proud of a new approach we’re taking to ensure that folks are getting the health care they need. Our Care Connect program is designed to help patients who have–or who are at risk of developing–diabetes, heart disease, lung disease or vascular disease.
Through Care Connect, patients are connected with a health navigator from the hospital (a licensed nurse or social worker) who will help them find support, resources and services for their condition. The health navigators can assist patients with finding appropriate physicians, support groups, specialty medical services, financial resources and more.
When living with a chronic condition, coordinating health care can be overwhelming. Care Connect is designed to help patients get the help and resources they need so they don’t have to go it alone.
If you or someone you know would benefit from Care Connect, please call 410-871-7000 and request a consultation or visit the Care Connect page on our website to learn more.
