Discharge Planning

El Campo Memorial Hospital strives to make your hospital stay as comfortable and successful as possible, but the care they give does not stop there. El Campo Memorial Hospital's Discharge Planner is responsible for helping the patient and family make the transition back home a positive one.

El Campo Memorial Hospital aids the patient and their family in developing a feasible post hospital plan of care with the understanding of the social, psychological, cultural, environmental, and financial factors which may affect the patient's recovery. The Discharge Planner will follow-up with the patient/family members through personal contacts, questionnaires and telephone contacts. Referrals are available for home health care, support organizations, specialized health care facilities and outpatient programs.
