Jefferson Parish Hospital Coordination and Transition
The Jefferson Parish Hospital Coordination and Transition (HCT) program is a targeted, time-limited (60-day maximum) service designed to assist adult consumers who are experiencing a psychiatric episode that precipitates a hospitalization. HCT utilizes a community-based approach with a team of social services professionals to address any barriers or concerns to treatment that an individual may face. The primary goal is to help consumers engage in outpatient aftercare treatment following their discharge from the hospital, to reduce the number of re-hospitalizations. The focus of the program is to engage consumers while they are still in the hospital, removing barriers to treatment after discharge, and strengthening natural supports.
