The Case Management Team is on the go throughout West Jefferson Medical Center and can be found anywhere patients are located. Case Managers provide a wide array of services necessary for the patient’s well being including care coordination, bed expediting, discharge planning, disease management and utilization management. Most of our Case Managers are seasoned nurses or social workers dedicated to ensuring the care provided matches the needs of each individual patient.

Our Case Managers follow patients during their hospital stay from admit to discharge monitoring progress or changes in the patient’s health status. Case Managers focus on the planning and delivery of care and evaluation of results for each patient with appropriate adjustments to the plan of care to facilitate successful outcomes.
