Transitional Care Clinic
The Baptist Health La Grange Transitional Care Clinic helps patients with diagnoses of heart failure, pneumonia or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
The purpose of the clinic is to help smooth a patient's transition from hospital to home. Clinic staff see patients who do not receive home care and primarily have a diagnosis of congestive heart failure, COPD or pneumonia. However, any patient with a serious, chronic condition can be a client.
The clinic's goal is to continue teaching the patients, their families and caregivers the necessary information and skills to continue recovery and better manage their health.
