Hennick Bridgepoint Hospital

Transitional Care

Contact Us

The focus of Hennick Bridgepoint’s Transitional Care service is supporting the care of patients who are ready for discharge from an inpatient stay at Mount Sinai or from another inpatient program at Hennick Bridgepoint, but the environment they are going to may not be ready.

The team provides programming to help patients maintain their physical, mental and emotional well-being and therapy is geared towards maintaining function.

Some of the transitional care beds admit patients into our reconditioning service for a rehabilitation program when a patient meets the criteria for this service.

For both our transitional care and reconditioning patients, the care teams work with patients and care partners to create a care plan tailored to each patient’s needs and goals. Both services also work with patients and care partners in discharge planning.

When you arrive

You will meet various members of your team soon after you arrive. We aim to work with you and your care partner(s) to maintain your health and well-being so that you can make the transition back home or to another care setting as soon as it is available.

Partners in care

Patients and family caregivers are important partners in care. You can speak with any member of your care team about anything related to your care. It’s also important to let your care team know about any changes in your health or discharge plan.

You can request a family meeting with your team any time. In a family meeting, you and your care partner(s) meet with your care team. You may want to discuss your progress, your goals and the plan for discharge.

Getting ready to leave the hospital

Each patient’s care needs are different. Patients admitted to our transitional care service do not require the level of care provided in the hospital and are waiting to make the transition to another location. When that location becomes available, or if additional planning is required, our team will work with the patient and care partners to make the transition as smooth as possible.

For patients who are admitted to our reconditioning service, our team will work with the patient and care partners on transitioning back to their home environment or offer support in identifying alternative living options.

When creating your plan for leaving the hospital, you, your care partner(s) and your care team will talk about:

  • When you may be ready for discharge
  • Different living options to meet the care needs you have and what supports are available to maximize your quality of life and well-being
