Community Care Network needs volunteers
COTTONWOOD -- The Community Care Network (CCN) will allow Verde Valley Medical Center staff to remain connected to our patients in their environment.
VVMC needs volunteer health coaches to interact with patients in their homes. The care provided will be supervised by nurse practitioner, Celeste Scalf, as an intermediary between patient and the primary care provider or specialist. Verde Valley will provide training for volunteers. Our CCN team will help patients navigate the healthcare maze after they are discharged from the hospital, ensuring that the transition will be smooth and preventing the patient having relapses and having to come back to the hospital unnecessarily. Our hope is that the health of these patients will improve as will their overall lives.
The CCN is in keeping with the mission of VVMC to improve the health of the communities that we serve.
