Care Transitions

Compass Health provides assistance to individuals transitioning from an inpatient setting to their home community.

For those who are receiving inpatient psychiatric care, our goal is to provide a seamless transition by coordinating with mental health provider agencies. The program assists individuals currently served by a community mental health agency to re-engage with their provider agency and be seen within 7 days of discharge from inpatient care. If the individual is not currently receiving services from a community mental health agency the program staff will assist individuals to obtain an assessment within 7 days of discharge.

Compass also provides transitional care services for individuals who are returning home from an inpatient medical stay and are deemed at risk for hospital re-admission if they are not followed closely during the month following their discharge.  Staff meet with the individual and their support network to ensure that the discharge plan is implemented successfully and work with the service and support network to stabilize the individual in the community.

Care Transitions services are available in Whatcom, Skagit, Island, San Juan, and Snohomish counties.
