Candy Sawyer, Regional Manager-IP Case Management for Samaritan Hospitals has asked us to coordinate a monthly meeting to connect hospital teams with local providers!

The new “Transitions of Care” meeting will follow our monthly Senior Service Network meeting in Albany each month (same room).

First Tuesday every other month,
Located in the Reimer Conference Room, across from the Albany hospital.

*Immediately following the month SSN-Linn/Benton meeting

From Candy:

  • Lebanon already has a quarterly meeting called Long Term Care…. But it is really specific to Lebanon hospital needs and it is not as well attended by most of our larger community
  • She wants to make it valuable for the facilities to have discussions with the hospital teams about how we can better partner with transitions of care.
  • Desired attendees would be representatives from Skilled Nursing, Assisted Living, Memory Care, Hospice, Home Health, In-Home Care and Independent Living.

Meeting Always In The Same Location
Location: Samaritan Albany General Hospital
Address: 1046 6th Avenue SW Albany, OR 97321
