The Kaweah Health Specialty Clinic Center is now open with a goal to reduce the number of hospital readmissions attributed to inadequate self-care. The center offers a multi-disciplinary approach with a team that includes a physician medical director, Harry Lively, M.D., who provides guidance and direction in providing patient care. The center initially focused on cardiac disease and diabetes teaching self-management and is expand to include respiratory illnesses such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma.

The center partners with physicians/providers in our community to work with patients who they believe may benefit from deeper engagement, education and collaborative management. The center holds an active partnership to equip and support them in making informed choices. Specifically, the center is geared to engage and educate chronically ill patients to develop self-care behaviors while helping coordinate and manage their care after discharge from the hospital or the emergency room.

In the near future, the center will expand its focus to include other common conditions such as diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, pneumonia, etc. As a result, the clinic is expected to reduce unnecessary emergency room visits, reduce the length of stay for patients at Kaweah Health Medical Center, and reduce 30-day readmission rates for patients.
