Transitions in Care

Continuing a Partnership in Caring

At Saint Clare’s Health System, we are continually finding ways to improve your care not only in the hospital, but also after you return home.  Our primary purpose is to make your life healthier and help prevent you from being readmitted to the hospital.  Saint Clare’s offers a 4-week program, called Transitions in Care, which is designed to improve the continuity of care for persons with chronic conditions across different health care settings, and ensure the smooth transition of each change. There is no cost to you or your insurance provider for any of the resources for the duration of your program.4
