|Continuing Your Care After You Leave the Hospital|
The Continuing Care Network is a collaboration and partnership with Saint Elizabeth, Nebraska Heart Hospital and local skilled nursing facilities. Our goal is to remain focused and committed to providing the best possible health care options for our patients who need continuing care beyond the walls of the hospital.
We know you have many choices for continuing care after you leave the hospital. Choosing the right setting can be difficult and challenging. That’s why we have created a partnership with local skilled nursing facilities in our community that share our strong commitment to ensure a smooth transition, ongoing communication and continued high-quality care that goes beyond the walls of our hospital.
Our partners have undergone rigorous site reviews and meet or exceed Nebraska state regulations for federal quality standards and patient satisfaction ratings.
We support our patients beyond our hospital walls through our Continuing Care Network making every attempt to enable you to return home more quickly. Our Care Management staff and physicians will work closely with you and your family as you choose a skilled nursing rehabilitation facility. We strive to improve the experience for you and your family members and reduce the unnecessary readmissions back into the hospital.
Care Navigation Program
The Physician Network manages a Care Navigation Program for patients being discharged from Saint Elizabeth or Nebraska Heart Hospital who require ongoing care at a skilled nursing facility or rehabilitation center. The program helps patients organize and manage their ongoing care and it reduces the chance of an individual needing to be readmitted to the hospital by promoting a safe recovery. We strive to deliver a positive experience for all patients and family members, and our Care Navigation Program is just one more way we support you beyond the hospital walls.
