Care Coordination

Pines offers care coordination services free-of-charge to all Pines patients. Pines Care Managers are a group Registered Nurses and Social Workers who serve as advocates for our patients. They help patients and their families sort through options and resources. These caring individuals often coordinate multiple services to ensure each patient’s needs are met.

Pines Care Coordinators work with patients, their families, and medical team members to coordinate all aspects of patient care. They collaborate with all providers involved in a patient’s treatment to ensure the patient receives comprehensive care.
