What to Expect


Once you enter this program, we will work with your primary care physician and other care members to create a personalized plan and safely transport you out of the hospital setting back at home. Our care team will then work with you to meet your specific needs. That may include lab tests, mobile imagining like X-rays or IV therapy.

During your care, regular check-ups can be done in person at your home or through telehealth. When you are ready to be discharged from the program, we will work with your primary care physician to ensure a smooth transition. If at any time you decide that the program is not the right fit, we can help find a safe alternative.

If I decide to participate in the Home Hospital program, what happens next?

Can I go out (leave my home) during my time in the program?

Just as if you were in the hospital, we ask that you stay home during your time of care. Your individual diagnosis and circumstances will be considered by the care team should you need to leave your home during your time in the program.

What if I don’t like the program?
