The care we provide doesn’t stop when you leave Boston. Your case coordinator in the International Center will work with you and your child’s physicians to produce a discharge plan that covers any ongoing medical or support services your child will need after leaving the hospital. The coordinator will also review the plan in detail with you and your family.

Our case coordinators are knowledgeable about the follow-up care required for the many conditions we treat, and they have extensive experience navigating the local complexities of follow-up care in different regions of the world. They’ll take the lead in communicating the discharge plan to your child’s medical team back home, and will help to ensure a seamless transition to follow-up care — no matter where your family calls home.
