Care Management

When you have a complex or chronic health issue, taking care of your health can be hard. Don’t go through it alone.

Nurse Care Managers are here to help you manage your health. Our nurses work with a team of dietitians and Community Health Workers (CHWs) who will take the time to get to know you and your background. They will also find out what is important to you, and find you the services that will help you feel your best.


Our Care Management Team is here to help you with all of your basic care coordination needs plus:

  • Take the time to understand your personal health needs and goals
  • Connect you with the care you need when you need it
  • Help you follow your provider’s instructions
  • Coordinate your care with one or more providers
  • Go over your medications with you
  • Make sure you have the help you need; such as homecare or special equipment, when medically necessary
  • Help you adjust to being home after a visit to the hospital
  • Teach you about diet and nutrition for your specific health needs
  • Take the time to understand who you are and what needs you have
  • Connect you with Community Support Services to help you get services for your basic needs such as housing, food, or childcare
