Care Transitions Patient

“ The more we manage Keith's care, the more he manages to keep out of the hospital. ”

"I used to be very active, I hiked, kayaked, mowed the lawn. Once I got sick, that all came to a screeching halt. I caught a respiratory infection and got as sick as you can be, and still be alive. The Care Transitions team at St. Luke"s Cornwall Hospital stepped up to the plate for me. I was so lost. My nurse, Kathy, took me aside and explained the things I can do to get healthier, out of the hospital and back home. She helped me make phone calls, wade through the mounds of paperwork and work with my other doctors. I have Kathy on speed dial, and because of the Care Transitions team at St. Luke"s Cornwall Hospital, I know I"m not alone."
