Post Discharge Clinic Making a Difference
for Patients in Need through the Support of Dr. Peter and Christina Rosario's Care of the Poor Endowment
Ascension St. Vincent Evansville's Post Discharge Clinic provides care after hospital procedures. Care Coordinators navigate patients through the post-discharge process - answering questions, making sure they understand aftercare instructions and appointments, and helping to reduce any barriers to a successful recovery. Some of these barriers may include not understanding medications/appointments, confusion on follow-up care, etc. However, for some of our patients, the barriers are greater and require assistance. Through the support of Dr. Peter and Christina Rosario's Care of the Poor Endowment, patients who cannot afford medication, medical supplies, Durable Medical Equipment (DME) (walkers, canes, etc.) or transportation home after discharge are assisted. This assistance means so much for patients who are already dealing with physical hurdles to overcome. Thank you, Rosario's, for your dedication in supporting our patients in need.

Suicide Prevention Month: Know the Warning Signs
Did you know that suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States and the second leading cause in people aged 10-34? Many times, mental health conditions are often seen as the cause of suicide, but it is rarely caused by any single factor. According to the CDC, 39% of people who die by suicide visit an emergency department in the year prior to their death, and up to 45% of people who die by suicide visit their primary care physician in the month prior to their death.  In fact, more than half of people who died by suicide did not have a known mental health condition.
