Care Coordination for Traveling Patients
The Center at Jersey Shore University Medical Center welcomes patients from around the world. We understand the difficulties of managing your health care alone, especially far away from home. We offer virtual visits and remain in close contact with patients’ providers at home to ensure well coordinated care.. We also offer Concierge Care, a complimentary service that caters to patient and guest requests, including hotel reservations, transportation and language assistance.
To help our surgeons at the Center for Treatment Paralysis and Reconstructive Nerve Surgery expedite patient visits, we have created a series of videos. These videos are designed to evaluate potential patients and maximize the efficiency of our selection process.
At Hackensack Meridian Health, we bring together different specialists in one all-inclusive visit, helping to provide the best, most convenient health care experience for patients and families.
