Committed to your recovery

For patients in transition between an acute stay in a hospital or rehabilitation center and returning to home full-time.

Your Bridge to Home

Universal Transitional Care Center provides outpatient care for recently discharged patients in the Roanoke area, serving as a bridge for the time when you are well enough to leave the hospital but are not yet strong enough to stop receiving care altogether. Patients who no longer need full hospital resources can continue to receive the care they need. Our primary goal is to facilitate a safe discharge, assisting patients in their recovery and rehabilitation.

Our Facility

All too often, patients face difficulty scheduling time with their primary care physician once they’ve been discharged. While they no longer require daily care and monitoring, it can be premature to send them home with no further attention. Some patients continue to need additional support from home health, a skilled nursing or rehabilitation center or a long-term care facility. Universal Health Transitional Care Center focuses on the 30- to 60-day window after an acute stay. Patients will have access to the clinic within 48 hours of their discharge and be seen by appointment only. 

Our approach addresses individual patient needs including:

  • Wellness checks
  • Medication management
  • New-onset illness and change of condition
  • Easy access to follow-ups
  • Wound evaluations
  • Behavioral change assessments
