Your Hospital Transition Plan
The Sun Health Care Transitions program provides hospital transition plans and in-home support services for patients with chronic illnesses who are transitioning home after a hospital stay. Our specialized team of care managers help patients navigate the difficult and uncertain experience of living with a chronic illness.
Through a partnership between Sun Health, Banner Boswell Medical Center, Banner Del E. Webb Medical Center, community physicians and other health providers, Care Transitions assists those living with chronic diseases in effectively self-managing their condition and, in turn, reducing hospitalizations.
How a hospital transition plan works
Transitions care managers work directly with care teams at Banner Boswell and Banner Del E. Webb to identify patients for whom the program would be a valuable resource. Once identified, Care Transitions staff helps the patient understand and adhere to the medication schedule, provides education about the condition(s) and what to watch for, ensures the patient receives timely follow-up care, and helps connect the patient to other community resources such as transportation or home-delivered meals. The ongoing support and guidance provided through Care Transitions helps patients become more aware and better able to manage chronic illness.
