Receiving a serious or terminal diagnosis could indicate that hospice care is needed in the future. It’s important to know that hospice care is not synonymous with dying. With a terminal diagnosis, death may not occur for months or even years.
Sante Healthcare of Scottsdale Arizona is spearheading an Urban Native American healthcare initiative in Maricopa County aimed at improving the quality of post-acute care for Native Americans. Many Native Americans in Maricopa County struggle to access the critical post-acute care they need. Santé’s healthcare initiative is an opportunity to close the healthcare gap in the Native American community in Maricopa County. The initiative will rely on collaborations and partnerships with healthcare providers and tribal community leaders to increase utilization and access to quality healthcare service. Santé’s commitment to the health and wellbeing of the urban Native American community starts with protecting and upholding the cultural and spiritual needs of the community while offering the care necessary for all post-acute needs.
Also known as sub-acute or transitional rehabilitation, post-acute care allows a patient to heal after an unexpected hospital stay. A comfortable setting with a compassionate team like Santé is ideal for patients who no longer need inpatient care, but aren’t ready to go home. With services to assist with pain management and wound care, post-acute care (PAC) can be critical to a full recovery.
