Social Services & Case Management

A Vital Part of Your Support System

UMC Social Workers are available to assist patients and families with comprehensive discharge planning. Discharge planning services include arranging for home nursing, home equipment, home infusion, nursing home placement, and other community referrals based on your unique health care needs. If you require assistance, ask your nurse to request a social worker to visit you.

Case Management Care Coordination

UMC's dedicated case managers are here to proactively monitor your plan of care and assist to remove barriers that prevent you from transitioning from the hospital to home, a nursing facility or rehabilitation.

Case managers also provide utilization review services by discussing your care progression and coordinating care with your insurance company. Additionally, case managers assist patients and families in understanding disease processes and facilitate discharge planning. If you require assistance, ask your nurse to request a case manager to visit you.
