Licensed medical social workers and registered nurse case managers are available to help you and your family cope with hospitalization and illness. These individuals work closely with physicians to:
- provide clinical assessment and counseling
- facilitate communication between you and your family and the interdisciplinary team
- communicate your needs to other medical facilities, care providers and vendors
- schedule appointments for your home care needs.
To ensure that the care you receive at Howard County General Hospital is high-quality, appropriate and cost-effective, our Case Management department continuously monitors the programs, staff and services involved in your care. We follow guidelines established for these review procedures by state and federal regulators and the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (TJC).
The Case Management Department can be reached at 410-740-7960, or via fax at 410-740-7564.
