Have you or a loved one been recently hospitalized with a newly diagnosed chronic disease such as CHF, COPD or diabetes? Or perhaps you are having difficulty managing your condition, with more frequent calls to your doctor and visits to the emergency room? Is your condition impacting your quality of life? You are not alone. Many people lack knowledge or resources vital to monitoring their illness.
HCM has long been committed to promoting good health in all areas of care, striving to keep patients out of the hospital through prevention and wellness programs and treating patients in the hospital with the highest and safest standards of care. In recent years HCM has gone a step further to help patients who are at high risk for chronic diseases or who are in transition from the hospital to home after a difficult illness.
Because of our small size and close-knit community, Hill Country Memorial is successful in undertaking these endeavors ways that larger hospitals often cannot. Through our dedicated medical and clinical staff, visionary leadership, and supportive community, HCM has been able to focus on elevating the health of individuals in the Hill Country by offering several programs to help patients find their new state of wellness living with a chronic condition.
