  • Help you manage your medications.
  • Need medical equipment to make your life easier? We can arrange that as well.
  • Referral to specialists as needed.
  • Follow up visit with one of our health care providers within one week of discharge.
  • Provider contact within 2 business days of discharge.
  • Individualized follow up testing and results management.
