Care Management

Care Management is a challenging choice for nurses. As an integral part of WellSpan Health, a Care Management career allows nurses to use clinical skills and knowledge to assist physicians, patients, and families through a hospital stay. There is frequent and daily communication with insurance companies in the active sense of authorizing extended stays, home health care, durable medical equipment, and transfers to other acute care, rehabilitation, or skilled nursing facilities. The Care Management nurse is a valuable resource of staff, physicians, and management in regards to acute care criteria and appropriateness.
