Beaumont Liaisons

Liaison: a person who helps organizations or groups to work together and provide information to each other.

When you or a family member are ready for discharge from a hospital or rehabilitation center, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed or unsure about the next step, especially when there isn’t much time to make a decision. However, you have rights regarding where you go next.

SALMON Health and Retirement has liaisons who can assist in finding services that meet your needs and will make recommendations—regardless of whether you select SALMON or another organization to provide them. While they are primarily associated with our Beaumont services and locations, they can help patients transition to any SALMON location or care level.

When time for discharge is close at hand, you must request a SALMON Beaumont liaison from your hospital case manager or discharge planner. That request gives us the necessary permission for one of them to review your medical chart and discuss options with you or your family. Our liaisons won’t push you into selecting SALMON if they don’t think you’ll benefit; that wouldn’t help you or us. They will freely tell you if another choice would serve you better.

There are times when you or a family member may need a change in living situation unrelated to a healthcare setting. Our trusted liaisons can meet with you at the hospital, other healthcare center or in your own home, if that’s best. We have areas we cover most of the time, but are ready, willing and able to go where you are to be of help. Contact information for our liaisons is listed below.
