The Case Management team at St. Peter’s Health helps patients and families meet their comprehensive health needs by advocating for them and coordinating appropriate care in a manner that is supportive and objective.
Our team includes social workers and registered nurses who will work with you, your family and your physician to assist you in arranging post hospital needs brought on by your illness. Our work this begins at the time you enter the hospital. After we are connected with you by hospital staff, we meet you in your room.
Case Managers assist with referrals for post-hospital care such as Skilled Rehabilitation needs, home health care or hospice and obtaining medical equipment.
Because insurance approval is required for nearly all of the services needed at the time of discharge, your case managers begin discussing your potential needs with you early in your stay allowing the coordination of services between the providers and your insurance company.
