Local folks may have noticed new Fort Hudson signage up at the Hudson Falls circle and wondered about it! Due to increasing growth of FH’s Care Management program, we have outgrown current office space on the Fort Edward campus, and are relocating program staff to offices in downtown Hudson Falls (the first floor of Bank Commons, located at 124 Main Street).
For those of you that are unfamiliar with Care Management – this program consists of 12 full-time employees under the… leadership of Director Rhenda Campbell, RN. Services and managed care is currently provided to approximately 300 medicaid covered individuals, primarily seniors. It covers a vast 6 county area including Clinton, Hamilton, Essex, Warren, Washington, and Saratoga counties!
Future growth is expected, as Fort Hudson begins development of a new Care Management Model — serving individuals not able to qualify for Medicaid. As explained by Rhenda Campbell, “…navigating the healthcare system, planning for future care needs, and coordinating services is a challenge even for the most savvy consumer. We are called up daily, and provide informal support now to assist a wide range of individuals with questions. With the growth of our program – we will be able to provide a more focused and dedicated team to meet more needs”.
Give a wave as you pass by the new office location to let our Care Management team know you’re saying hello! Move in day is expected for early September 2016. For information on all of Fort Hudson’s programs – contact our FH main number at 747-2811.
