Before you leave, your doctor and health care team members will give you instructions for your continued care. Central Texas Medical Center offers a variety of support and activity groups, health education programs, screenings and special events designed to keep you well. For more information, click here or call the Institute for Healthy Living at (512) 753-3818.
Discharge planning begins at the time of your admission. Your physician will inform you of your discharge and give you any necessary instructions about caring for yourself after you leave.
We ask that you make transportation arrangements to leave the hospital as soon as your discharge procedures are complete. A staff member or volunteer will be available to escort you to the lobby by wheelchair.
Should you or your loved one require home health, hospice care or physical therapy/rehabilitation, you have a variety of options from which to choose. However, if you’ve enjoyed your care here at CTMC, we’re pleased to inform you that we offer each of these services on an outpatient and in-home basis as well.
For more information, or to arrange follow-up care, please discuss your options with your case manager (512-753-3680) or social worker (512-753-3563).
