The JGH Resource Center was established in September 2007 to serve as a point of origin to help the public better understand the many options available to them as they navigate through what can sometimes be a complex and challenging healthcare system.
Jackson General Hospital has provided Case Management Services to inpatients for many years. This includes coordination of care for individual health needs, referrals to outside agencies such as Home Health, Rehabilitation Hospitals, Skilled Nursing Homes, Long Term Care, Assisted Living, Private Duty Care, etc. and provision of information about financial assistance for those who qualify. Recognizing the uninsured and underinsured patients, as well as the stress associated with the complexity of health care options, particularly for the elderly, we are extending this service to the outpatient population as well.
Case Management Staff will be providing the following services through the Resource Center:
- FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE INFORMATION
- SOCIAL ASSISTANCE INFORMATION
- COORDINATION OF MEDICAL CARE
- HELPING THOSE IN NEED
