Health care services in transitional care units, nursing homes and senior living communities
SeniorCare Transitions, part of Allina Health, works with patients and their families to manage medical care in these settings:
Our on-site medical teams support healing and help prevent unnecessary trips to the clinic or hospital.
SeniorCare Transitions considers a number of things when deciding which locations to provide care including; location, reputation, average number of beds available, number of patients who are discharged to home rather than readmitted to the hospital, availability of therapy staff and the number of clinicians and doctors we have available to care for patients.
Services are billed to your insurance company, including Medicare. We will submit a claim for services on your behalf. Please contact your insurance carrier for questions about your insurance benefits.
To arrange nurse practitioner and doctor visits at select facilities near you, call the Care Navigation Help Desk at 651-635-9173.
