CrossOver Hospital Discharge Clinic
Imagine finding yourself in the hospital without health insurance. Not only are you sick or hurt, but you are facing mounting bills and an uncertain future once you are released. Where will you go for follow up care? How will you pay for medications? This is a situation faced all too often by our low-income, uninsured neighbors.

Luckily CrossOver is here to step in and help. Our hospital discharge clinic at our Cowardin locations provides comprehensive services for patients just released from the hospital.
Many uninsured people face a revolving door of hospital readmission because they have nowhere else to turn. CrossOver works with local hospitals to break this cycle.
Every Tuesday, recent hospital discharges come in for an initial screening. They receive:
  • Financial Screening
  • Social Work Assessment
  • Depression Screening
  • Medications Review and Prescription Medications

Then, just three days later, on Friday morning, they have their first medical appointment. The new patient has a full medical exam with our Medical Director, Dr. Mike Murchie. They also have a consultation with a volunteer pharmacist and are scheduled for any follow up appointments and specialty visits they might need.

Our social work team also follows up by phone in thirty days to check in on the patient and ensure that all is going well.

This system is a win-win for everyone. The patient receives quality care and one less person is stuck in the cycle of emergency rooms and hospital visits that raise healthcare costs for everyone.

Please consider a donation to CrossOver before December 31st. You can help ensure a bright new year for many of your neighbors in need.
