Discharge Planning

Discharge planning at Winthrop-University Hospital is handled by Case Managers who assist patients and their families with arrangements for post-hospitalization care. Case Managers are assigned to each patient care unit to assist patients and their families and physicians in developing a discharge plan of care tailored to meet the specific needs of the patient. Once the plan is developed, the Case Manager secures the necessary post-hospitalization services and can provide information about additional community resources when necessary.

Patients who have questions regarding their discharge plans are encouraged to discuss them with their Case Manager.
