A Brief Case for Saying Thanks

Have you ever worked with a case manager at a hospital? They are the people who help patients understand their health status, what is being done, and what treatments to expect.

The case department managers at LifeBridge Health institutions are composed of nurse case managers, clinical social workers, utilization review nurses and case management support staff. They collaborate with physicians, nurses and all the ancillary support departments to facilitate access of care for patients, and help them through the often confusing process of health care options.

National Case Management Week is this week, so if you see a case manager, it's a good time to say "thank you!"
