Community Care Teams
Patient Support Services
Patient care at The Wright Center extends far beyond our walls and into the neighborhoods and communities where our families live, work and go to school.
Through our patient support services and community outreach programs, we go beyond caring for the sick. Wherever you are on your wellness journey, The Wright Center will help you live your healthiest, happiest life.
Case management services are provided by our dedicated team of healthcare professionals who work with patients to identify barriers preventing you from reaching your healthcare goals. Our case managers work closely with our 皇家华人 and behavioral health teams while providing support and guidance to patients when it comes to the appropriate delivery of health services while identifying and coordinating community resources to provide whole-person care.

Patients transition from hospital inpatient discharge to home, inpatient to skilled nursing, inpatient to home health, outpatient discharge and more.

The Wright Center鈥檚 Transitional Care team manages education, care team communication, follow-up, outreach, medication adherence and more.
