The case manager is your link to the treatment team.
At Magee, our case managers have a master’s degree in social work (MSW), or are licensed clinical social workers (LCSW). Planning for your discharge begins at the point of admission. A case manager will be assigned, and will coordinate the services you need prior to your discharge from Magee. Your case manager will consult with you and your physician about the need for continued services and/or equipment when you leave Magee and will coordinate a safe discharge to home.
You can discuss your concerns with your case manager and they will address them with the appropriate person, group or organization. Together with you, your loved ones and your team, they will coordinate the plan for your discharge. Your case manager will continue to be available to you after discharge to ensure a smooth transition.
