Yale Health

Inpatient Care

Our fully-licensed inpatient unit offers evaluation and treatment for a variety of medical conditions in an intimate and caring environment. Supported by in-house diagnostic imaging, pharmacy, physical therapy services, and 24-hour clinician supervision, the Inpatient Care Department provides Yale Health members with timely and responsive care for a variety of medical issues.

Our services include:

  • Admission for continued care of patients transferred from the hospital after surgery or serious illness

  • Admission directly from any Yale Health clinical department for further evaluation, diagnosis or treatment for a range of common medical problems

  • Physical therapy for inpatients

  • Hospice and palliative care

Your care team

Your healthcare team consists of our staff physicians and PA's, nurses, certified nursing assistants and other appropriate specialty clinicians who will work with you and your family, or others you designate, to design a plan of care. In addition, if your condition requires specialized services such as dietary planning or physical therapy, Yale Health staff from those areas will also be involved.

Discharge Planning

Your discharge will be based on your medical needs. Yale Health staff will help coordinate care that may be required when you return home, and will assist with scheduling follow-up appointments, and other tasks essential to your full recovery.
