Transitional Care Program

Deer Lodge Medical Center has partnered with Allevant Solutions, a joint venture of Mayo Clinic and Select Medical, to provide the community of Deer Lodge with an enhanced Transitional Care program. This program was created by Mayo Clinic pulmonologist and Allevant Medical Director, Mark Lindsay, M.D., and is modeled on the successful efforts of the Mayo Clinic in Wisconsin and Minnesota.

  • “Transitional Care is a high quality, evidence-based program for patients who are well enough to leave a traditional hospital setting but still have nursing, therapy, or respiratory needs that may not be optimally met in their homes or skilled nursing facilities.” – Dr. Wayne Martin

Our team is especially equipped to meet the needs of even the most complex patients:

  • After Complex Surgery
  • Respiratory Needs
  • Wound Care
  • Intravenous (I.V.) Antibiotics
  • Specialized Physical Therapy
  • Speech Therapy

Key Features of the Transitional Care Program:

  • A personalized plan of care
  • A hospital level nursing staff with low nurse to patient ratios
  • Comprehensive model of multidisciplinary bedside rounds that engage you, your family, and your care team to help you reach your goals
  • Hospital level nurse staffing to keep you safe and meet your needs
  • Promotes a home-like environment accommodating family and individualized activity programs
  • Our on-site physician, therapy, radiology, laboratory, and pharmacy teams will address all your medical needs.
