Patient Support Services

At Stamford Hospital, we place great emphasis on treating patients and families as individuals and take pride in providing the best possible medical care with a human touch.

Among the patient services we provide are:


Case Management

If you need services outside of the hospital upon discharge, the nurse case manager will be responsible for arranging it: home healthcare, medical equipment, home hospice services, and most other services provided in the home or on an outpatient basis, including infusion and outpatient physical therapy. The Department of Case Management is staffed from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. There is an on-call case manager for evenings and weekends, available by dialing “0” in the hospital.

Social Workers 

If you require care after you are ready to leave the hospital, the physician, case manager or nursing staff will request that you be seen by a social worker. The social worker will assist you and your family members should you require out-of-home post-hospital care, including placement in skilled nursing facilities, acute rehab hospitals, and long-term care nursing homes.

Spiritual and Pastoral Support

The Department of Pastoral Care has a staff of chaplains available at all times to provide for your religious and spiritual needs, as well as the needs of your family, during your stay at Stamford Hospital. Our chaplains offer support in any faith tradition or when there is no faith tradition. A chaplain can help you access the faith resources you want, provide spiritual help, or help you sort out your own thoughts and feelings about what is happening. At your request, we will contact your pastor, priest, rabbi, imam, or faith community to help support you while you are in the hospital.
