The case management department at Northwest Medical Center would like to welcome you.
We are committed to informing you of available community resources to meet your post-hospital needs. We encourage your participation in decision making with respect to the discharge planning process. We care about our patients and their families. We appreciate what an important part the family plays in a loved one's recovery. We work collaboratively with our patients, physicians, community and insurance companies to meet our patients discharge needs.
Normally, within one day after you are admitted to Northwest Medical Center, you will be visited by one of our nurse case managers. This nurse will briefly interview you and your family, if possible, so that any discharge planning needs you may have can be identified. Once we identify a need, we will inform you of available community services and discharge planning options. With your agreement, an individualized discharge plan will be formulated and communicated to your physician for his/her approval.
We are available seven days a week to meet the needs of our patients. We can be reached at (954) 984-3782.
