Women's Health

Integration is the key when it comes to making sure patients get the best health care. To ensure that patients have optimal health results when they leave the hospital, Atlantic Health System offers the Transitions of Care program to patients. We focus on helping patients understand what the next steps are in terms of follow-up with their doctor, getting their medications, taking care of themselves at home, just coordinating and navigating the system. To schedule an eligibility screening for the Transitions of Care program, call the care coordination center at 1-855-226-7171.
