The American Geriatrics Society defines “transitional care” as a set of actions designed to ensure the coordination and continuity of health care as patients transfer between different locations or different levels of care within the same location. Locations most often include hospitals, sub-acute and post-acute nursing facilities, the patient’s home, primary and specialty care offices, and long-term care facilities. Our Clinicians provide an array of patient services that are available at the patients place of residence. Representative locations for transitional care include, but are not limited to:

  • Hospitals
  • Sub-acute and post-acute nursing facilities
  • Primary and specialty care offices
  • Long-term care facilities
