Our transitional care team consists of nurse practitioners, nurses, medical assistants and a pharmacist. Their goal is to help ensure that you have the resources you need to successfully manage your chronic condition. They provide:

  • Individualized education specific to your condition.
  • Medication reviews.
  • Vital sign monitoring equipment.
  • Weekly follow-up calls to check on your progress.
  • Monitoring of your symptoms and intervention if they worsen.
  • Individual consultation and support from our nurse practitioners. 
  • Assistance with ensuring appropriate and timely follow up care with your primary care provider and specialty providers.
