At Columbine Health Systems, we take immense pride in our team of dedicated professionals who go above and beyond to ensure the seamless transition of patients from home or hospital to our care. Our hospital and community liaisons are at the heart of this process, bridging the gap between medical facilities, providers, and family members to ensure patients receive the care they need without delay.

 

What Is a Hospital Liaison?


Hospital liaisons facilitate smooth resident transfers by assessing resident needs and coordinating with hospital and Columbine staff. Their goal is to ensure every resident transitions into our care with the right support and treatment plan.


What is a Community Liaison?


A community liaison acts as a central contact point for inquiries, providing prompt responses and assistance to current and prospective residents and their families. They facilitate smooth transitions by obtaining necessary documents and coordinating transportation. Knowledgeable about Columbine's services, they ensure inquiries are addressed efficiently and with care.
