Making Your Hospital Discharge Easy

Planning for your discharge begins on your first day with us. Our goal during your stay in the hospital is to start you on the road to better health. Ensuring that you understand the next steps and are involved in making those decisions is essential to your full recovery.

If you need to arrange for continuing healthcare after your discharge from the hospital, you’ll receive information and assistance from your attending physician and the other members of your healthcare team. All of our patients are entitled to receive a sufficient amount of time before discharge to arrange for their continuing health care needs.

As a patient of one of our facilities, you also have the right to be informed by the hospital about any special appeal process to which you are entitled by law if you disagree with the hospital’s discharge plan.
