Discharge Planning and Case Management

generic.pngWhat will happen after you leave the hospital? Fox's Discharge Planning/Case Management Service is right here to help you answer that question.

Our mission is to help patients who need to use additional services or follow special instructions after they leave. Your discharge planning team-your doctor, your nurses, case coordinators and other healthcare professionals-can instruct you in taking medicine, changing dressings and using medical equipment. If necessary, we help you arrange for life skills assistance or even find a special nursing facility that's right for you.

You play a critical role on this team. The more you tell us about your health, home, family, interests and insurance coverage, the better we can determine-together-what you'll need when you leave the hospital.

Feel free to get in touch with our Discharge Planning/Case Management Service by calling 607-431-5040.
