Care in your home, instead of the hospital.
Comfortable and Convenient Care
Home Recovery Care allows patients to receive medical care in their own home instead of the hospital or skilled nursing facility.
A team of doctors, nurses and other medical professionals treat and monitor patients daily, usually lasting about three to five days.
Safety is Contessa’s focus.
Home Recovery Care is safe and doctor-recommended. Patients receive quality and compassionate care in their home, at no extra cost.
You may be referred to Home Recovery Care by your doctor if you:
- Have a medical condition that needs treatment for a short period of time
- Had surgery that normally would require a short stay in the hospital
- Recently stayed in the hospital and would normally be referred to a skilled nursing facility
What To Expect
Your healthcare treatment plan is created by the doctors you know and trust. The doctor will oversee your care from your own home instead of the hospital. You will have a dedicated Recovery Care Coordinator who will be available to you 24/7. A registered nurse will provide care to you in the comfort and convenience of your home.
